Jump for Joyce! Mvula back in Manchester

Manchester Thunder have secured Malawi shooter Joyce Mvula for the 2019 Superleague season.

Mvula has committed to the Black and Yellows for a third season.

The 24-year-old will be Thunder’s import player for the campaign, after impressing in her first two seasons.

Mvula, who won two awards at the Thunder 2018 Awards ceremony, including Players’ Player of the Year, said: “I can’t wait to come back to play in front of the best crowd in the Superleague.

“This is going to be OUR season!”

Debbie Hallas, Manchester Thunder managing director, said: “We are delighted Joyce will be playing for us again next season.

“She really grew in confidence in 2018 and I can’t wait to see what she can bring in 2019.”
