Congratulations to groundsman Paul Twamley who has achieved a first class honours degree and was awarded the 'Outstanding Student of the Year' trophy. Paul studied for three years at Moulton College and completed his BSc (Hons) in land management by writing a 13,500 word dissertation.
He has already attended a ceremony at Moulton Park where he was presented with the 'outstanding student' trophy and has a further degree congregation from the University of Northampton to attend.
He worked full-time while studying and also became a father for the third time this year, so it has been a memorable few months for him. He is now considering a career change to become a primary school teacher.
Paul said: 'I learned lots from the degree; how to organise work better and improve my time management skills. The last time I studied was in 1993 when I did an HND in amenity horticulture so gaining my degree has been really fantastic. I was the only one from my cohort of students to gain a first so I'm really pleased, all the hard work paid off!'
