BURTON Albion manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has received an honorary fellowship from Burton and South Derbyshire College.

The Gaffer attended the college's graduation ceremony on Friday at St George' Park where he received the honour.

He then gave a speech to the assembled audience highlighting the importance of education and inspiring students to reach their full potential in life.

Hasselbaink said: “It is great honour and something I will treasure alongside my achievements in football.
“It’s particularly special to me as, when I was young, I didn’t value education as much as I do now – I thought simply playing football was enough. Now I know that education is one of the most important things in life because that’s what allows us to grow as people and to achieve new goals.”
