Born and raised in Manchester, Lois Pearson has been part of Manchester Thunder’s pathway since 2012. She has made her way through each age group whilst playing for her local club YWCA Bury. 

She stepped up from a training partner to a member of Thunder's first team squad in the 2021 Netball Super League (NSL) season and made 21 appearances, earning Thunder’s Most Improved Player accolade at the end of their title-winning season. 

After winning an NSL title in her debut season, in 2022 Lois was selected to represent the Vitality Roses at the FAST5 Netball World Series held in New Zealand where they finished in fourth place. Additionally, she represented the Future Roses in curtain raiser matches against the England Thorns at the Jamaica Series in January 2023. 

Lois re-signed for Thunder ahead of the 2023 season and became a consistent presence in Karen Greig’s matchday squad, fast becoming a fan favourite. The 2024 season has seen her continue to deliver stand-out performances, as she has established herself as a lynchpin in the northern side’s attacking line-up. She also hit the milestone of 50 NSL appearances in the 2024 season. 

After two years in the Future Roses programme, Lois has been elevated to the full-time Vitality Roses programme for 2024-25.
