Mvula becomes the second Malawi’s netball export after Mwawi Kumwenda who plys her trade in New Zealand.

The towering shooter confirmed she is indeed leaving and has expressed delightment.

“I am happy that I will finally be flying to England,” said Mvula on Tuesday.

She will replace Jamaican Shooter Marvadene Anderson who was withdrawn due to Visa issues.

The 22 year old Mvula has been an influential player for both the Malawi Queens and her Club Blue Eagles Sisters due to her amazing style of play especially accurate shooting skills.

She was spotted by Manchester Thunder at the 2014 Commonwealth Games as well as 2015 Netball World Cup (NWC) according to Manchester Thunder official website

Coach Karen Greig recently expressed excitement with Mvula joining her club and had alot of praises towards the Queens shooter.

“I am excited to have Joyce on board having observed her during NWC last year and Fast Fives more recently. Joyce has proven that she is an exciting shooter who has physical capabilities and ability to play
between GS and GA and will pose great threat to any defence she faces.

“I am really looking forward to welcoming her into the Thunder family”, Creig was quoted by Thunder website.
