Chelsea's Sam Kerr Clinches FWA Women's Footballer of the Year


Chelsea striker Sam Kerr has been honored with the prestigious Women's Footballer of the Year award, marking her remarkable achievements in yet another outstanding season. This is the second consecutive year that Kerr has clinched the FWA Women's Footballer of the Year title, solidifying her status as a true force in the sport. She emerged victorious among fierce competition, with Aston Villa's Rachel Daly and her Chelsea teammate Lauren James securing the second and third positions, respectively.

Throughout the Women's Super League (WSL) campaign, the Australian international showcased her scoring prowess, netting an impressive tally of 10 goals in 18 games. Just a few weeks ago, Kerr reached a significant milestone by scoring her 50th league goal in England. Her exceptional form continued in all club competitions, as she recorded an astonishing 26 goals in 34 appearances this season. Since joining Chelsea in the 2019/20 season, Kerr has been instrumental in securing three league titles, two FA Cups, and two League Cups under the guidance of manager Emma Hayes.

With Chelsea currently pursuing a double, Kerr has a valuable opportunity to add more silverware to her collection. The Blues find themselves trailing WSL leaders Manchester United by just one point, but with a game in hand. The ongoing title race has already delivered thrilling moments, and Chelsea is determined to come out on top. Kerr's exceptional performances and goalscoring abilities will undoubtedly play a crucial role in the team's pursuit of further honors this season.
