Joyce Mvula bags 3rd player of the match award


Malawi Queens shooter Joyce Mvula collected her third player of the match award this season after inspiring Manchester Thunder to reach the semifinals of the 2022 Vitality Netball Superleague.

Mvula was in imperious form when Thunder secured their 20th win of the season against Loughborough Lightning 71-63 and go into the semi-finals unbeaten.

“International shooter Joyce Mvula picked up the player of the match award, with Emilia Roscoe and Millie Sanders sharing the goal defence bib in the absence of Shadine van der Merwe,” reports


“On a home court at Belle Vue, the outfit’s trademark tenacity and strength in depth enabled them to get over the line 71-63 against last year’s champions,” it adds.

Mvula said the most important thing was Thunder’s victory and continued unbeaten run.

“Even though at times I went out for treatment but I still gave it my best. I am glad my best was acknowledged. It is all about helping the team win,” she said.


Following the win, Thunder will take to their home court again at Belle Vue to face Team Bath Netball in the first of the two Superleague semi-finals on Friday whereas Loughborough Lightning will be hosting London Pulse in the other semi-final at the Sir David Wallace Arena later on Friday evening.
