In recent sports news Blue Eagles Sisters have announced the return of their top shooter Joyce Mvula, who was on a year long absence due to maternity leave.
Confirming of the development with Malawi-Sports, both Mvula and Eagles Sisters assistant coach, Madano Tepetheya, said it is a massive boost to the Central Region netball giants as they prepare for the Airtel Money netball regional finals slated for this month end.
Speaking to Mvula in an interview, she revealed how excited she is to return back to action and that had started training to keep herself fit ahead of Airtel Money netball regional finals.
“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
