Centre Region netball giants Blue Eagles Sisters have received a major boost following the return of top shooter Joyce Mvula, after a year-long absence due to maternity leave.
Both Mvula and Eagles Sisters assistant coach, Madano Tepetheya, confirmed in an interview on Wednesday.
Mvula said she had started training to keep herself fit ahead of Airtel Money netball regional finals slated for this month end.
“I have been out of competitive netball but I am back now and ready to play. At the moment I will only play for Eagles because my child is still very young. I hope I will be ready to feature for the Queens in July or August if the coaches consider me,” said Mvula.
On his part, Madano said Mvula’s return was a major boost as the team was preparing for Airtel Money regional finals.
“She is one of the key players in our team and we are very happy to welcome her. We need her experience as we are preparing for big tournaments such as Airtel Money,” said Tepetheya.
In the absence of Mvula, Eagles have been relying on Roselyn Zakeyo, Ruth Banya and Cecelia Mtukule as attackers.
Mvula last played competitive netball for Malawi Queens at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland in July, 2014
