Wilson began his career with a local junior club Portobello Thistle before signing for Clydebank in August 1927 and then joined Alloa Athletic three months later. He then went to Huddersfield Town where he played one game, in March 1928 and got his name on the scoresheet. He became a Leeds player in March 1929 and after appearing in three consecutive League games of United’s final four games of 1928-29, when John White was injured, he was transferred to Chesterfield in June 1930. He scored once in three League games while at Saltergate. When he gave up playing, he began working for an engineering firm in Huddersfield, which left him with severe tinnitus (A continual buzzing in the ears), when he retired. Wilson, who had worked as a miner before becoming a professional footballer, died at Huddersfield on 22nd May 1984, aged seventy-eight.
