Riverhounds veteran Kevin Kerr returns for the 2017 season. This will be the midfielder’s fifth season with the club and second as captain.
In 2016, Kerr scored 12 points, recording four goals and four assists in 27 appearances. In the season finale last year against FC Cincinnati, Kerr played in his 100th career match for the Black and Gold, which ranks No. 10 all-time in team history.
During the 2015 campaign, Kerr started 26 of his 27 appearances, scored 10 goals and tallied nine assists. The midfielder was named USL All-League second team.
Kerr played in 46 games and scored five goals in his first two seasons with Pittsburgh. He made his Hounds debut in a 2-1 home loss to the Harrisburg City Islanders on April 13, 2013. One week later, Kerr tallied his first goal with the Hounds in a 2-1 loss at the Dayton Dutch Lions.
Kerr ranks No. 7 in Hounds history with 19 goals.
In 2012, Kerr signed with AGOVV Apeldoorn, a second tier Dutch team. Shortly after his arrival, AGOVV declared bankrupt. As a result, Kerr, who was born in Münster, Germany due to his father’s military duties, joined German club S.C. Wiedenbruck of the Regionalliga West, a fourth tier league.
Kerr signed his first professional contract with Arminia Bielefeld and made his debut for the club in Germany’s second tier in March 2010. Internationally, the midfielder, who calls York, England his hometown, played for the Scotland U-21 team in 2009. He made two appearances for the squad.
