Manchester Thunder sign Takondwa Lwazi as an All-Star for Fast5

Manchester Thunder have introduced another Malawi Queen All-Star for Fast5 Championship

This is the second All-Star player for Thunder ahead of next month’s British Fast5 All-Stars Championship – Takondwa Lwazi.

Known to friends and supporters as Bonzo, she was influential in centre court for the Malawi Queens at the Netball World Cup this summer in Liverpool and has been part of her country’s squad for some time, including at last year’s Commonwealth Games.

The 27-year old Police Sergeant will link up with fellow Malawi stars Joyce Mvula and Lauren Ngwira, who have just signed for Thunder’s 2020 Superleague campaign, as one of the two All-Stars who join the Thunder squad exclusively for the Championship at the Copper Box on 12 October.

Eight teams from the Superleague will do battle in 12-minute matches with Thunder, the Vitality Netball Superleague Champions, already having named Australian Erin Bell as their first All-Star player.

Takondwa said:

“I can’t wait to come to the UK with Joyce and Lauren and join up with the Thunder squad to prepare for Fast5. It’s going to be so exciting to team up with the Superleague Champions, play at the Copper Box in London and meet some of the amazing Thunder fans.”

Thunder’s Director of Netball Karen Greig said:

“I’m super excited to have her on board for Fast5. Having watched her play in recent years during the World Cup, Commonwealth Games and Fast5 World Series, I am sure she will be a great fit for us for the competition. She is fast and often appears from nowhere on court, while her connection with Joyce will be key to opening up defences.”
