Kerr moved from the Chicago Red Stars to Chelsea midway through the 2019-20 season after becoming the all-time goal scorer in the American competition
Kerr comes from rich sporting bloodlines, with both her father, Roger, and brother, Daniel, playing professional Aussie Rules. Daniel played 220 games for the West Coast Eagles, earning All-Australian honours and winning the 2006 AFL Premiership.
She moved to Chelsea halfway through the 2019-20 season, just before the start of the pandemic, after becoming the all-time goal scorer in both the A-League and National Women’s Soccer League in the USA.
In Sunday’s title-deciding final game of the season Kerr scored one and set up another three as Chelsea rolled through to a consecutive title and sparked wild celebrations at the club’s Kingsmeadow ground.
‘She’s an Aussie? You know [she won’t stop]. She’s in party mode,’ one person tweeted.
‘It’s an Aussie thing,’ another said.

Kerr led the way for Chelsea in both goals and assists, and with her latest golden boot she became the first person, male or female, to top the scorers in three different leagues
Kerr led the way for Chelsea in both goals and assists, and with her latest golden boot she became the first person, male or female, to top the scorers in three different leagues.
Former Socceroo Tim Cahill and Australian cricketer Peter Siddle were among her compatriots congratulating the 27-year-old superstar on Instagram as she lit up the platform with her celebrations.
Kerr, like her father and brother, grew up playing Aussie Rules, only converting to football when she was 12.
The AFLW reached out to her last year trying to poach football’s newest rising star and make her the face of the league’s inaugural season.
She rejected the approaches, saying she has much more to achieve in the world game.
‘One day I might finish off in an Eagles guernsey, but there’s more opportunity, more to accomplish in women’s soccer at the moment,’ Kerr told FourFourTwo.
‘I don’t want this code-war mentality. AFL gets out to support the soccer and soccer gets out to support AFL. Any sport in Australia is great and it’s really good for us.’
Sam Kerr continues to add to her resume as the finest women’s footballer on the planet
