Old Gold Club | Joleon Lescott reflects on his time at Wolves

Play-off final hero Joleon Lescott will give a glimpse behind the curtain of his time at Molineux when he appears as the latest guest on the club’s official Old Gold Club podcast on Wednesday evening.

The Birmingham-born defender, who made 235 appearances in gold and black, is the 13th former Wolves star to appear on the second series of the podcast when he chats about his football upbringing at the club to hosts Mikey Burrows and ex-Wolves striker Chris Iwelumo.

After graduating from Wolves Academy into the first-team at just 17, Lescott was named the supporters’ young player of the year in his first two seasons as a senior squad member, before being a key part of the team which won the club promotion back to the top-flight for the first time in 19 years at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium.

On this evening’s 30-minute video show, Lescott speaks about not wanting to be a defender, coming up through the Academy, getting the bus home after games, his relationship with Terry Connor and his first taste of training with the first-team.

The 37-year-old also expands on the influence of Denis Irwin and Paul Ince in the Wolves dressing room, taking on Kevin Muscat in training and missing Wolves’ entire first season back in the Premier League through injury.

The episode will be aired at 6pm on Wednesday, with a 30-minute Facebook and YouTube show, while an extended chat will go live on iTunes here.
