Sam Kerr wins 2022 PFA Women’s Player of the Year


Sam Kerr 2022 PFA Women's Player of the Year

Chelsea forward Sam Kerr won the 2022 PFA Women’s Player of the Year award after narrowly missing out on the award in 2021 to her teammate Fran Kirby. She beat the competition posed by Vivianne Miedema, Pernille Harder, Alex Greenwood, Lauren Hemp, and Kim Little. Kerr scored 20 goals this season to lead Chelsea to the Women’s Super League title, pipping Arsenal on the last day of the season. She also scored the winner in extra-time against Manchester City in the FA Cup.

“It’s a massive honor I think, whenever you’re voted by your peers. I think that’s the highest honor as a player so, it’s an amazing feeling,” Chelsea forward Sam Kerr said after winning the 2022 PFA Women’s Player of the Year. “I do a lot as a player, sometimes it comes off and sometimes it doesn’t, but I think you have to see yourself in those moments. I just have belief in myself honestly. Just lots of confidence that in the 90th minute or whenever it is, the team will give me the ball and rely on me. Knowing that my team trusts me gives me loads of confidence. I love those big moments – that’s what I live for as a footballer.”

“It is a real honor to receive this trophy, I feel lucky and blessed to be in the game after many years, really grateful,” Brighton manager Hope Powell said after picking up the PFA Merit award. “One of the nice things about being involved in the game is the vast experiences I have had over the years, whether as a player or manager at FIFA World Cups, European finals or the Olympics and now at Brighton and Hove Albion. Each section has been very different but largely very enjoyable and I feel very lucky and privileged to be in this position.”
