For the second successive year Samantha Kerr has been voted the International Football Player of the Year by the Football Media Association (FMA) of Australia.

Kerr was recognised for her efforts for club and country with the striker scoring a career high 22 goals in 2014.

"Already marked as an exciting talent for the women's game, Sam Kerr has picked-up where she left off last year to enhance her reputation in the past 12 months as one of the best young forwards in world football," said FMA President Ray Gatt.

Internationally Kerr scored against World No. 4 France and Italy and was a key player in the Matildas run to the final of the 2014 AFC Women's Asian Cup.

For her then US club Western New York Flash, Kerr led the team scoring with 9 goals, finishing in the Top 10 league goalscorers and becoming the first Australian to earn Player of the Week honours (Week 9).

Upon return home, the winger moved back to hometown club Perth Glory.  Her 11 goals (2nd best in the W-League) and 4 assists helped them in capturing their first premiership before her season was cut short due to a knee injury.

Kerr will be presented with her award in the next few weeks.
