The awards and accolades have kept on coming for Kerr in 2018.
The striker had claimed every individual award possible in following her record-breaking NWSL season with Sky Blue FC in 2017. Kerr returned the home soil with Perth Glory for the 2017/18 Westfield W-League season and would be named Young Australian of the Year in January.
It was just reward for the Perth-born striker, who has developed into the figurehead and one of the main drivers of the Westfield Matildas' recent on field successes.
She would score 13 goals in nine appearances for the Glory during the league campaign and received the 2017/18 Julie Dolan medal alongside Westfield Matildas' teammate Clare Polkingorne.
Kerr shone at AFC Women's Asian Cup, grabbing three goals for Australia, and was recently named PFA Women’s Footballer of the Year for the second year in a row, becoming the first female player to claim back-to-back awards.
She also scooped third place in the BBC Women's Footballer of the Year 2018 after votes from thousands of fans from around the world. Kerr is also in line to receive more honours after being nominated for two awards at the 2018 ESPYS (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly), with both the Best International Women’s Soccer Player and Best NWSL Player up for grabs.
The 24-year-old is currently on the books of Chicago Red Stars in the NWSL and has claimed five goals and two assists to help the Red Stars into fourth position on the ladder this season. She recently scored a hat-trick in a league match against Sky Blue to become the first NWSL player to reach 50 goals.
