It is understood she was involved in a collision as Charlie Devlin beat the offside trap to lob Katie Startup in the Addicks goal in the 12th minute.

According to loyal Man United Women’s fan Iain Seeley, Kerr suffered a rib injury after colliding with Startup and required oxygen as she began to struggle to breathe.

The referee has decided to abandon the match due to medical reasons. We will bring you details on rearranged details and ticket news in due course. Thanks for your support#cafc

United’s medical staff gave her oxygen but, after 35 minutes and still no sign of an ambulance, the oxygen ran out and Charlton had none of their own.

Almost an hour after the players first went off the pitch, and following a ‘temporary postponement’ the game was finally called off with just 12 minutes on the board.

Kerr was taken to hospital, but there has been no update fromCharlton AthleticWomen at this time.
