How did Joleon Lescott get his scar ?

This was not on my list of posts to write today, but a look at my blog stats revealed that three people came to this blog searching for this.  This blog did not have any such article, but I’ll put it up now.  Lescott has established himself as a defender at Everton, and has also been capped at national level.

Lescott was born on August 16, 1982 and shares his birthday with Stefan Klos, Stan Lazaridis, Didier Agathe, Ivan Hurtado, Jonatan Johansson and cricketer Shivnarine Chanderpaul.

At the age of 5,  Lescott was coming out of his primary school when he was struck by a car. He suffered severe head injuries, and was in hospital for several months. Doctors had to operate on him, and he finally recovered, with only a scar to show for the accident.

    i know the feeling the exact same thing happened to me. got teased a few times at school. few scar face remarks were made. ruined my life. I am now struggling to recover still physically and emotionally working my hardest to earn the money for my operation in order to gain respect in the working world.

    School can be filled with a bunch of uncaring people.
