Sam Kerr’s match-winning strike against Manchester United at Kingsmeadow has been nominated for the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Goal of the Month award for March, after her expertly taken finish which secured a vital three points for the Blues.

We earned a hugely valuable victory against Marc Skinner’s United side on home turf earlier this month, which took us back to the top of the Women’s Super League table momentarily as the title race intensified.

Lauren James showed wonderful vision to pick out Kerr with a pin-point long range aerial pass, the latter controlling wonderfully before delicately lifting the ball over Mary Earps and into the far corner in clinical fashion.

Kerr goes up against Arsenal’s Caitlin Foord, Manchester City’s Lauren Hemp, Aston Villa’s Rachel Daly, Reading’s Rachel Rowe, and two nominees from Tottenham Hotspur in the form of Celin Bezit Ildhusoy and Bethany England for this accolade.

Voting for Goal of the Month is now open and the vote will close at 10am on Monday 3 April.
