Malawi national netball team icon, Joyce Mvula who is based in England Club has been given six weeks to recover from a knee injury which she limped off the court in the last weekend as her club Manchester Thunder beat Wasps 57-52.
Mvula is expected to join Queens’ campaign as the preparations following the Netball World Cup.
Mvula assured the nation that she would be fit for the Netball World Cup in Liverpool, England this July.
Mvula said that she will not come home for Queens’ camping instead she would join the squad once the team arrives in England.
“I have been advised to remain here in England and recuperate. The fear is that I would aggravate my injury if I get home now, as I need state-of-the-art medical equipment to make a quick and proper recovery,” Mvula said.
Queens coach Griffin Saenda said he is keeping his fingers crossed over Mvula’s availability for the World Cup.
Mvula has been playing for Thunder for three seasons and last year, she won two awards at the club, including Players’ Player of the Year.
Meanwhile, the national team will also miss the services of lofty shooter Australia-based Mwawi Kumwenda, who is recuperating from an injury.
