“She is also an incredible human being who will be such value added to our team environment.”
Proscovia has spent the last 3 seasons in Australia playing with Sunshine Coast Lightening in the Suncorp Super netball league.
Looking to share her elite level experience Peace said “ I belief that I learnt a-lot in Australia both on and off court which was a great experience that am grateful for.
“I will bring my extensive experience playing against some of the best defenders in the world under pressure . I will also bring my accuracy and dominance under the post and share my knowledge with the upcoming Surrey storm shooters.”
Although a netball superstar Peace left us with humbling words. “I never thought that an opportunity would present itself for me to go back to where my professional life all started.
