Queens coach Peace Chawinga-Kalua has said despite the fallout with the Netball Association of Malawi (NAM) on one hand, and her assistant Mary Waya on the other, she is optimistic that her charges will perform wonders at the Netball World Cup in Sydney, Australia.
Chawinga-Kalua said this before the team’s departure yesterday.
“The solace is that the disagreements do not involve my players and I am optimistic that we will do well.
“Obviously, the situation is not good, but we have to focus at the task at hand and forget about the problems that are there.
“My focus will be to prepare my players psychologically ahead of the tournament,” said Chawinga Kalua.
The Queens are scheduled to play a strength-testing match against Trinidad and Tobago on August 4 ahead of the actual tournament which rolls into life on August 7.
