Joleon Lescott

BornAugust 16, 1982

Joleon Patrick Lescott is an English footballer who plays for Manchester City and the England national football team. Though he primarily plays as a centre back, he has played in various other positions across the defensive line, including left-back. Lescott is a graduate of the Wolverhampton Wanderers youth academy. He made his first team debut with Wolves in 2000 and he was named the supporters' Young Player of the Year two years running. By 2002 he was a first team regular, playing in most Wolves' games. At the conclusion of the 2005–06 season, he was named in the Championship team of the season, voted for by his fellow professionals, and also picked up the Wolves' Player of the Year award. At the start of the season, he jumped base to Everton and made his debut in August 2006 during a victory over Watford and his first start of the season away to Tottenham Hotspur. The game was Everton's first victory at White Hart Lane in two decades, and Lescott was named man of the match. Lescott was voted the Players' Player of the Season 2006–07 by his teammates. On 25 August 2009, Lescott signed a five-year contract with the Manchester United Club for a fee speculated to be £22 million. Lescott made his debut for City on 27 August in a 2–0 League Cup away victory over Crystal Palace and scored his first City goal in a 2–2 draw with Fulham on 25 October 2009. Lescott was part of the Manchester City team that won the FA Cup, beating Stoke City 1–0 in the final at Wembley. Internationally, Lescott represented England at various youth levels before making his first team debut in 2007 against Estonia in the Euro 2008 qualifiers.
