Chelsea Women manager Emma Hayes and Blues striker Sam Kerr have been nominated for December’s Barclay’s FA Women’s Super League Manager and Player of the Month awards.

Hayes led her Chelsea side to four victories in December with two of them coming in the WSL against West Ham United and Brighton and Hove Albion.

Kerr, meanwhile, has been in scintillating form this season and that continued in December with the Australian netting a hat-trick in our 3-2 win over West Ham.

The 27-year-old was also the matchwinner in our 1-0 away victory at Brighton, bringing her league tally this season to seven.

Other manager nominees are: Casey Stoney (Manchester United), Rehanne Skinner (Tottenham Hotspur), and Gareth Taylor (Manchester City).

Other player nominees are: Jess Fishlock (Reading), Caitlin Foord (Arsenal), Leah Galton (Manchester United), and Caroline Weir (Manchester City).

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