Debuted in the Thirds in 1951 and broke into the senior side three years later. After playing 20 games in three seasons, Wilson applied to leave the Demons in the 1957 pre-season. Carlton, Richmond and North Melbourne, tried to win the services of the ruckman/defender, and he applied for a clearance to the Blues but was refused. He was also linked with South Melbourne, where his father had played three seasons in the Seconds from 1929.
After another clearance request - this time to Richmond - was refused, Wilson stayed with the Demons and played first ruck in a premiership side. In the losing 1958 Grand Final he played in a back pocket.
Captained the Thirds in the early 1950s. Exact year unknown.
