From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George Adams McDonald Kerr (born January 9, 1943 in Alexandria) is an Scottish former footballer and manager.

As a player, he played for Barnsley, Bury, Oxford United and Scunthorpe United.[1]

As a manager, he managed Lincoln City twice, Grimsby Town, Rotherham United and Boston United.[2 ]

Managerial Career

Kerr briefly managed Lincoln City in 1977 and became manager of Grimsby Town in 1979. The Mariners won the Third Division championship in 1980 and finished 7th in the Second Division the following season after challenging for promotion with the side in the top three with seven games remaining. However, that form was not maintained the following season despite a good start, and with Grimsby bottom of the league Kerr left in January 1982 to make way for David Booth.

He became manager of Rotherham United in 1983 but was unable to save the club from relegation to the Third Division. He remained in charge for another two years, first avoiding relegation and then challenging for promotion before finishing mid-table. In 1985, Kerr returned to Lincoln where despite the presence of Phil Turner and Neil Redfearn in midfield, the side was relegated to the Fourth Division. He remained in charge the following season, which began well with the Imps as high as 7th in the New Year. An inexplicable collapse in form followed and Kerr left the club in March, before Lincoln became the first club to be relegated from the Football League to the Conference.

He later managed Boston United.
