Surrey Storm have announced the re-signing of Zimbabwe captain Felisitus Kwangwa for the 2022 Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) season.

The 26-year-old goal defence returns to the duck egg blue for another season with Storm. Kwangwa first caught the eye of Head Coach Mikki Austin during the 2019 Vitality Netball World Cup where she walked away with three Player of the Match performances.

Last season, the Zimbabwe captain showed her international experience as she filled the stat sheet with deflections and interceptions, picking up a Player of the Match against Wasps in the final game of the season.

“I am so excited to be back with Storm which is an opportunity that I always appreciate,” she said. “This season, I want to be a Superleague champion.”

It has been a busy off-season for Kwangwa as she returns home to Zimbabwe and joins the national team which are due to travel to Namibia for African Championships and Pent Series Tournaments.

“I am so happy that Zimbabwe will be back in action again,” she said. “Since our last game back in 2019, I am now looking to use all the experience I have gained from the Vitality Netball Superleague towards the success of our team.”

With this signing, Storm’s defence is looking strong as the core returns with Aussie Leah Middleton, Northern Ireland international Niamh Cooper, rising star Alima Priest and pathway project Grace Sullivan.

Thrilled with the signing, Austin said: “We are really pleased to welcome Felisitus back to Surrey Storm.

“An athlete that really grew into her role here last season and relished being part of the VNSL environment. We look forward to welcoming Felisitus back into the fold and having her in duck egg blue.”

Kwangwa becomes Surrey Storm’s 12th signing of the 2022 Signing Window after Mikki Austin, Yasmin Parsons, Niamh Cooper, Frankie Wells, Emma Magee, Ellie Kelk, Peace Proscovia, Alima Priest, Leah Middleton, Grace Sullivan and Sophia Candappa.  You can see the Storm squad as it develops here.
