Although born in Malta, he learned his football at Maple Road School, Mexborough, South Yorkshire. In September 1984 he was signed by Sheffield Wednesday, went to South Africa, where he played with Arcadia Shepherds in August 1988, before Leeds took him on as a non-contract player in December 1988. His left foot was seen to good effect in several appearances with United’s lower grade sides and Malta were informed of his availability for the National side. Kerr did not have the requisite skills to make a bid for any first-team spot and was sometimes used in games with little meaning near the end of the season without much at stake. He went on loan to Doncaster Rovers in August 1991 scoring once in his seven starts, Blackpool in December 1991, where he scored once in thirteen starts, before he was sold to Reading in July 1993 for £75,000 gaining a Division Two championship medal in 1993-94.He made ninety seven starts and seven substitute appearances for the Royals, scoring five goals. He left Reading in September 1996 and had one game for Carlisle before signing for Kilmarnock a month later. As with Reading, Kerr found stability and made sixty-seven appearances in his almost four year stay at Rugby Park. He won a Scottish Cup Winners’ medalin May 1997 but suffered recurring groin problems after that and he left in September 2000. He made one substitute appearance with Kidderminster Harriers and from then on his career was a series of short stops. He joined joined Slough Town in October 2000 and scored once in nine games before leaving for Clydebank in November 2000 but left after two months and playedfor Hamilton Academicals scoring three goals in seventeen games, from 20th January 2001 to 11th August 2001, playing a crucial role in their promotion from the Scottish Second Division. He made a brief return to England with Exeter City, scoring once in six appearances, but he moved on shortly after Noel Blake parted company with the club. He moved back to Scotland with Greenock Morton, occupying the left back slot for most of the remainder of the season, scoring twice in twenty-three appearances. After a very short spell at Gateshead, he came back to Yorkshire for a short while in September 2002 with Harrogate Town and scored twice in seventeen appearances before departing for pastures new in November 2002. He then played a game with East Stirlingshire as a trialist in January 2003. He scored two good goals in the game which was against Queens Park at Hampden Park, but he went back to Hamilton Academicals at the end of January 2003, making seventeen appearances for them before retiring in June 2003,after a spell with Kilwinning Rangers. After retiring, he coached juniors at Kilmarnock, gained a coaching certificate and then he coached in the United States for a while. He was then Argyll and Bute Council's Football Development Officer from 2005 to 2009. In September 2009 he became an Assistant Manager with South African club Mpumalanga Black Aces until June 2010. Manager Sammy Troughton was sacked and they both joined Thanda Royal Zulu where they managed to keep them in the 1st Division against all the odds. They later joined Nathi Lions FC but it did not last long and Kerr became Academy Director and Football Consultant for Khatoco Khanh Hoa FC in Vietnam.
