Aaron Anthony Lescott (born 2 December 1978 in Birmingham, West Midlands) is an English professional footballer who currently plays as a defender for Halesowen Town. He is the older brother of Manchester City and England defender Joleon Lescott.

Playing career[edit]

Lescott started his career as a trainee with Aston Villa making only one first team appearance for them (in the FA Cup third round tie against Hull City). Unable to establish himself at Villa, he had a loan spell with Lincoln City in 2000, before signing for Sheffield Wednesday in October of the same year for a fee of £100,000.[2]

He made 43 appearances for Sheffield Wednesday before moving to Stockport County in 2001 for a fee of £75,000. He made 81 appearances and scored one goal for County, before leaving to join Bristol Rovers in August 2004. He won runner up in the 2007–2008 player of the year competition, with captain Stuart Campbell coming first.[3]

In March 2010 he joined Cheltenham Town on a one-month loan, having been unable to regain his place in the Bristol Rovers team after recovering from injury.

Along with 14 other players, he was released by Rovers at the end of the 2009/10 season.[4] On 14 July 2010 Lescott completed a free transfer move to League One outfit Walsall on a one year contract following his release from Bristol Rovers.[5]

Following the expiry of that contract, Lescott sought out other clubs and went on trial with Yeovil Town in July 2011.[6]

On 9 August 2011, Lescott signed for Halesowen Town.[7]
