GEMS captain and Surrey Storm goal defender Felisitus Kwangwa is happy with her progress in the Vitality Netball Super League in the UK and believes she has gained confidence despite the club’s inconsistent run.

The first netball export from Zimbabwe made it into starting line-up over the weekend for the first time since her historic move to the United Kingdom in November.

The Vitality Netball Super League began last month with Kwangwa making her debut appearance with cameo roles.

On Friday she played the last two-quarters of the game against Severn Stars where her team lost 49–46.

But on Saturday the Zimbabwean national team skipper made it into the starting line-up against the league leaders Loughborough Lightning.

Surrey Storm again lost 37 – 56.

“I played the last two-quarters of the game (against Severn Stars) and unfortunately we lost.

“We played our second one on Saturday and I was on the first line-up for the first time since I was here.

“I think I have gained confidence now and I am getting used to the style of their play also. I am quite happy with my progress and I hope I will keep on improving each day I go to training.

“I am now fit enough just need to polish up on my skills,” said Kwangwa.

Surrey Storm have managed two wins from seven games.

They are eighth in the 11-team league.

“As a club we need to work extra hard so as to win more games, she said.

Kwangwa and Surrey Storm return to the court on March 21.
