Carl Tilson 31.5% votes
Gary Barlow 25% votes
Winner - Carl Tilson
With massive support from Manchester City supporters clubs and those Pride Of Manchester members who read his story, the grandson of Fred Tilson, the Manchester City & England legend who scored two goals in the 1934 FA Cup Final, beat off stiff celebrity competition to deservedly win this year's Mancunian Of The Year Award. Suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, the muscle wasting disease that affects around 2 boys born every week, Carl has tirelessly championed his charity in a bid to raise more awareness of the terrible disease.
Aged 23, Carl is fully aware that there is currently no cure and most boys with DMD only have a life expectancy of 18-25 years. For that reason, despite being almost completely paralysed by the condition, he has set upon a campaign to raise awareness of the disease and raise funds to help research in finding a cure.
