The She Cranes have built more momentum ahead of the Africa Netball Championship following the arrival of their skipper Peace Proscovia.

Proscovia touched down at Entebbe at 1:45pm on Sunday ready to join the rest of the team in preparation for the weeklong event starting this Saturday at Lugogo.

Uganda’s only professional netballer, playing for the Loughborough Lightning in the England Netball Superleague, on arrival vowed to
share her expertise with the rest of the team in the remaining four days to the event.

“I can’t change the team’s results alone but I can bring a positive impact if we play as a team,” Proscovia said.

“Blending is the most important weapon if we are to perform well otherwise if my team-mates begin comparing the clubs each plays for then it will affect our performance,” she added.

Proscovia will join her team-mates who include Lillian Ajio, Stella Oyella, Rachael Nanyonga, Florence Nanyonga and Halima Nakachwa who she last played with on the same team at the 2015 World Cup in Australia.

“It’s been a while since I partnered with them or even saw them play but I know they are still good,” she said after being received by UNF’s offi cial Annet Kisomose and team manager Jocelyn Ucanda.

In camp, the summoned team of 18 players is expected to be trimmed to 12 on Wednesday after the friendly match against Malawi at Lugogo.

Meanwhile, as the She Cranes welcome Proscovia, Malawi netball team, The Queens, will also be boosted by their dependable shooter
Joyce Mvula who plays at Manchester Thunders in the U.K.
