Manchester Thunder was playing Scottish Sirens and won b53-47, parrying away their initial mishaps in two opening away games.

The game was the first at their home ground and partisan fans waved Malawi flags for Joyce Mvula.

Mvula joined the English club from Blue Eagles Sisters in December 2016  to become the first Malawian netballer to play in Europe.

The towering shooter rarely missed when given a ball that she was market tightely but rewarded the fully parked indoor court with classic long range baskets.

The game was also used to officially welcome Mvula to Manchester led by Charles Kachitsa  the chairperson of Malawi Manchester Association who presented flowers to all news team members.

Other prominent Malawians who watched the game included Malawi High Commission defence attaché  Sydney Linyama, First Secretary Peter Chilinda and press attaché  Kondwani Munthali. Also among the Malawian crew included Andre Chimenya of Malawi Manchester Association and Linda Ghambi who is hosting Mvula during her stay in UK.

Thunder head coach Karen Craig said she was impressed with her team’s performance  and Mvula’s contributions.
