Pulis and Banks get honorary degrees

Pulis and Banks get honorary degrees

Tony Pulis has been given an honorary degree by Staffordshire University for his 'services to sport and joined Gordon Banks who was also given a similar award.

Tone was given his award by the Faculty of Arts, Media and Design at the University at an award ceremony on Friday and followed the presentation of another honorary degree by the Faculty of Health to Potters and England legend, Gordon Banks earlier on in the week in ceremonies at Trentham Gardens.

I don't think that we'll be seeing Doctors Pulis and Banks showing off their ceremonial robes at the Brit and TP really should stick to his trademark baseball cap rather then the University's more traditional headgear with it's very fetching red tassel.
