Former UCU Angels star and She Cranes captain, Peace Proscovia, has signed a new two-year contract with the UK based netball club, Loughborough Lightning.
The Gilbert Netball Ambassador for Africa and former NIC player will take part in the team’s opening league game against Manchester Thunder on February 18, when the 2017/18 England Netball Super League season kicks off.
In an interview carried on the club’s website, the 27- year-old goal shooter said she was overwhelmed with joy and humbled for being given this opportunity.
“I would like to thank the Loughborough Lightning team for the faith, belief and trust that they have put in me for the time I have been here,” she said.
Proscovia was one of Uganda’s stars at the netball World Cup in 2015. She said that her experience and input is attributed to her club’s support.
“The most important thing in my career has been to understand the science and art behind netball, which I acquired from Loughborough.”
Proscovia is currently an Msc Marketing student at Loughborough University, and she added that her aim is to reach the NSL final.
