Recent NWSL golden boot winner, Sam Kerr, signed a 2 1/2 year contract with Chelsea Women to start up December 27. Kerr, an attacker on the pitch, had spent time with the Chicago Red Stars and also on the Australian National Team.
Very exciting news, indeed, for Chelsea fans.
I can’t wait to join the club and hopefully you welcome me with open arms because I’m so excited to come and represent the club and show what I’m made of. And hopefully we’ll win some silverware together.Sam Kerr via Chelsea FC news
Chelsea sits atop the table for the league after 7 weeks of match play with 19 points, including the past five matches as all wins. ManCity and Arsenal both following a point behind. Adding Kerr to the mix will help drive the overall goal differential higher and, hopefully, continue to drive Chelsea through the season.
