Jason Kerr joined Latics on a three-year deal on Transfer Deadline Day following a seven-year stay with Scottish Premier League side St Johnstone. Kerr started his career at the Perth club in 2014, spending two seasons on loan at East Fife from 2015 to 2017, winning the Scottish League Two title in the 2015/16 campaign. He later moved to Scottish Championship side Queen of the South on loan until 31 January 18, with the central defender being recalled on 14 January 2018. Kerr made his debut appearance for St Johnston on 29 January 2018 in a Scottish Cup fourth round win against Albion Rovers at Cliftonhill. Impressing with his solid displays and immense leadership qualities, Kerr was named as St Johnston’s club captain ahead of the 2019/20 season following the departure of Joe Shaughnessy. The former Scotland under-21 international captained the Saints to a historic League Cup and Scottish Cup double last season, with his form earning the defender recognition in the Scottish Premiership Team of the Season. Kerr has played over 200 senior games despite still being in the relative infancy of his career, and adds further strength to Leam Richardson’s defence during the 2021/22 League One campaign.
