Lifelong City fan Colin Musgrave is planning a dream summer holiday with his girlfriend Kate after winning two Coral Economy return flights to Abu Dhabi with the Club's main sponsors Etihad.
Colin was the 500,000th supporter to attend a home Barclays Premier League match this season and received his prize from Club Ambassador Mike Summerbee during the interval against Blackpool on New Year's Day.
"My Christian names are Colin and Michael, after Bell and Summerbee," he revealed. "My Dad wanted me to be Colin Michael Francis Lee, but my mum put her foot down and said he could only have two of those!
"It was a very pleasant surprise to win, and a great start to the New Year combined with the three points against Blackpool. I've travelled but I've never been to Abu Dhabi - Mike says we'll have a great time."
Resident in Hyde but born in Gorton to a true Blue family, Colin says he won't use the tickets until the season is over: "I've already checked the Europa League final date - I wouldn't want to miss out on that one.
"I think the second half of the season is going to be even more exciting than the first, and I don't want to be away for any of it."
