Student Matt to go on to National Guild of Bricklaying finals

Two West Nottinghamshire College bricklaying students built up their bricklaying skills last week at the National Guild of Bricklayers’ Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire regional competitions, held at the Institute of Further and Higher Education in Grimsby.

Bricklaying student Matt Tebbett (19) bagged himself a winning entry in the seniors’ competition, which sees him going forward to the national finals in Walsall, West Midlands, in October, where he will go through a three-day series of competitions to try to win the Guild of Bricklayers trophy and to get the chance to progress to the World Finals.

Matt (19) and fellow student Tom Caunt (16) were both entered into the competitions by tutor Tim Bond for their dedication and skills.  Tim said: “We knew Matt would excel in the competitions after his tremendous efforts last year in the College’s internal bricklaying competition and we’re so proud of what he achieved in Grimsby. 

“Tom also did outstandingly well and we have seen this young man achieve such impressive results on his course and his progress and quality of work has been inspirational.”

Winner Matt also impressed the judges in Grimsby with gaining the highest score of the day.  Matt said: “I also walked away with the Olney Cup which is awarded to the highest scoring competitor of the day.  I am looking forward to competing in Walsall and want to do the College proud.”
