Malawi Queens Spar Netball Challenge travelling squad

Mwai Kumwenda is not part of the 15 member Malawi Queens traveling squad ahead of the Spar Netball Challenge in South Africa while Joyce Mvula will not make it due to club commitments.

The squad has seven defenders, four attackers and four shooters, five of whom are new faces (Beauty Basiyao, Maggie Sikwese, Tendai Masamba, Juliet Sambo and Mary Nyirenda).

Vixens cleared Mwai Kumwenda but she has excused herself on grounds that she is on holiday, Netball Association of Malawi said in a brief statement.

Towela Vinkhumbo returns to the squad after nearly a year long absence, joining the Queens’s defence alongside Captain Caroline Mtukule, Martha Dambo, Grace Mwafulirwa, Juliet Sambo, Beauty Basiyao and Maggie Sikwese.

Enterprising Queens’s attacker Takondwa Lwazi forms a formidable quadruple attacking machinery setup together with Bridget Kumwenda, Thandie Galeta and Beatrice Mpinganjira.

Queens’s shooters traveling with the team include Sindie Simtowe, Jessica Mazengera, Tendai Masamba and Mary Nyirenda

The Queens squad leaves the country on Monday morning through Chileka International Airport for the three test series scheduled between 26 and 30 November in Rustenburg, South Africa.
