Hayes, Kerr and Berger nominated for Manager and Player of the Month awards

Emma Hayes, Sam Kerr and Ann-Katrin Berger have been nominated for April’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League Manager and Player of the Month awards and fans can now vote for them to win.

Hayes and Kerr were recently nominated for the WSL season awards and the Blues duo are now in the running for the April awards, along with Blues goalkeeper Berger.

Hayes has guided her side to within six points of securing back-to-back WSL titles after a comprehensive 6-0 win over Birmingham and a vital 2-2 draw away at fellow title contenders Manchester City.

Kerr continued to shine for the Blues in the victory over Birmingham as she helped herself to a first-half hat-trick and the Australian played a huge role in clinching a point on the road at Manchester City.

Kerr headed home the opener before winning the penalty which Pernille Harder converted to earn the Blues a vital draw in the race for the league title.

While our No.20 has been producing the goods at one end, Chelsea keeper Berger has been excelling at the other, keeping 17 clean sheets in all competitions this season.

Berger produced a save of the season contender in our pulsating clash with City, denying Lauren Hemp late on to ensure Chelsea remained two points clear at the top of the WSL with two games to go.

Other manager nominees are: Marcus Bignot (Aston Villa), Olli Harder (West Ham United), Joe Montemurro (Arsenal).

Other player nominees are: Hawa Cissoko (West Ham United), Kenza Dali (West Ham), Vivianne Miedema (Arsenal).

The awards are decided by a combination of votes from a panel and fans.
