West Australian star Sam Kerr has claimed yet another accolade after she was voted joint-winner of the Julie Dolan Medal for the best player in the Westfield W-League.

The Perth Glory midfielder and Football West NTC product shared the honour in Sydney tonight with her Matildas teammate Clare Polkinghorne, who plays for Brisbane Roar

It is the second time both players have received the award. Kerr won it 12 months ago.

Kerr and Polkinghorne both received 17 points. Another West Aussie, Lisa De Vanna of Sydney FC, was joint-third with 15 points alongside Emily van Egmond of Newcastle Jets and Melbourne City’s Jess Fishlock.

Kerr also took out the W-League Golden Boot Award courtesy of her 13 goals, while De Vanna’s Round Eight effort against Canberra United was voted Westfield W-League Goal of the Year.

In the past year 24-year-old Kerr has been named Young Australian and Young West Australian of the Year and AFC Women’s Player of the Year.

She claimed the US National Women’s Soccer League MVP and Golden Boot awards while at Sky Blue FC. She is currently playing in the NWSL for Chicago Red Stars.

And Kerr is also on the five-player shortlist to win the BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year award.

Sydney FC’s Polish import Adrian Mierzejewski won the Johnny Warren Medal for the best player in the A-League.
