Blue Eagles Sisters have vowed to bounce back through the forthcoming Presidential national netball trophy scheduled for Blantyre Youth Centre next week.
Eagles were in pole position to win the GOtv Netball Champions League, only to lose in the final to Kukoma Diamonds. Now, they step into the Presidential event as favourites again.
Eagles, who are hunting for their first silverware in decades, blamed their downfall on fatigue as five of their regular players were among eight players undergoing Police training in Mtakataka, Police Training College in Dedza.
Now, Eagles face similar challenges as their eight players, including Joyce Mvula, Tana Kuwali, Florence Chirwa and Ruth Kaliyenda, are undergoing training.
Eagles coach Sam Kanyenda said they have advised the players to concentrate on their netball as well.
“That time we failed to impress because somehow the players did not concentrate on ball-work during their police training. This time we have been following up and we know that we will deliver,” he said.
Kanyenda said they were yet to recall the players to fine tune before the competition throws-off.
Meanwhile, the finals will attract 12 teams, including four regional champions.
Prison Sisters will represent the Eastern Region while the Central Region has Green Sisters, with Young Sisters coming from the Northern Region.
Southern Region’s Alliance Capital Stars complete the list.The four join seeded Tigresses, Diamonds, Thunder Queens, Blue Eagles Sisters, Civonets, Mafco, Mimosa Queens and Lameck Queens
