Malawi’s netball export to the United Kingdom Joyce Mvula on Sunday won yet another iPRO Hydrate Player of the Match Award in her club Manchester Thunders’ 69-33 victory over Celtic Dragons in the the Vitality Netball League.
She won the award after an impressive performance saw her bagging 47 goals for Manchester Thunder.
Mvula attributed the award to self belief in her career.
“Here is a fruit of the determination to keep going even when it gets hard. Even when everything and everyone else seems to not believe you can do it,” she said.
The award comes with a £50 prize and Mvula has since donated the money to her former club, Blue Eagles Sisters.
The club applauded Mvula for donating the money to Blue Eagles, a club that nurtured her talent.
“Joyce Mvula is an extremely talented athlete and a police constable in Malawi. Her netball talent opened doors for her, this is a proof that hard work pays.
“The Malawi Police community must be proud of her achievements!! Her talent is being appreciated and recognised in UK and on World Netball global news Joyce Mvula,” the club said on its website www.Manchesterthunder.com.
