Kerr celebrates Chelsea hat-trick with backflip

Australian superstar Sam Kerr starred with a hat-trick performance as Chelsea hammered Birmingham City 5-0 during this morning’s Women’s Super League.

Kerr’s hat-trick was part of a stunning 26-minute cameo.

She first found the net in the 18th minute, then the 29th and then nodded in a simple header for third in the 44th. She now has 23 goals to her name across the WSL calendar year.

The 28-year-old celebrated her third goal with a backflip.

“The most important thing for us was to get the win, finish out a hard block – a lot of away games, and to keep a clean sheet was really nice,” Kerr said after the match.

“I’m really enjoying it. It shows in the way we’re playing, we’re all playing with a smile on our faces.

“Scoring a lot of goals is always fun… it’s an amazing club and an amazing team. I’m enjoying it a lot.”

She also confirmed her backflip celebration was requested by her teammates, who had been giving her “stick” for not celebrating enough.

“I haven’t [been practising the backflip],” she added.

“The girls have been giving me stick, saying I don’t celebrate that I hadn’t done the backflip since however long ago.

“The girls always give me stick that I haven’t [backflipped] at Kingsmeadow, so I thought I would bring it out.”

The win puts Chelsea within one point of league leaders Arsenal, while Birmingham City remain winless.

Chelsea will face Arsenal in the FA Women’s Cup final next month.
