“I feel so happy for the awards. I thought I couldn’t make it but I am grateful for the support I have been receiving from Surrey Storm throughout the season that has made me stronger,” she said.

 Earlier, head coach Fred Mugerwa started training 28 home-based netballers before chopping them to 20.

The veteran coach said he expects shooter Mary Nuba to join the team as soon as possible but he had not heard any news from Proscovia.

However, Proscovia told Sunday Monitor that she will soon be joining the team in training.

“I will soon be joining the She Cranes team,” she said.
