Kerr to stand trial over alleged racially aggravated harassment

Chelsea striker Sam Kerr will stand trial next year after pleading not guilty to alleged racially aggravated harassment of a police officer.

The Australia international appeared in court on Monday after being charged with using insulting, threatening or abusive words that caused alarm or distress to a police officer during an incident in Twickenham on January 30.

Kerr attended the hearing via videolink and pleaded not guilty.

A four-day trial is now slated to take place next February.
