Biography


The wee winger had a long and illustrious career, which encompassed spells with five Scottish clubs.

Born in Newmains on 20th April 1942, his first senior club was Newcastle whom he joined as a teenager from Shotts Bon Accord. Scoring twice in twelve Football League games for the Geordies, he was released in 1962 whereupon he joined Morton.

Hal Stewart's Greenock side romped away with the Second Division title in his second season there, which saw him pick up a League Cup runners-up medal as well as a league championship dong.

During the 1964-65 campaign Morton established themselves in the First Division and at the end of the season Eddie Turnbull who had just taken over as Aberdeen's manager, took him to Pittodrie. It brought the winger a second Hampden final appearance, but again it was of the consolation variety after the all conquering Celtic beat the Dons 2-0 in the Scottish Cup Final.

As a result, Jimmy made his European debut, playing in all four of Aberdeen's European Cup Winner's Cup ties the following season. However, before the end of the year, he was involved in a swap deal that took George Murray to Pittodrie with Wilson heading to Motherwell after scoring 34 goals in 110 outings for the Dons.

It was no fairy-tale start because, the Steelmen were relegated at the end of the season. However, they bounced right back at the first attempt as champions so Wilson earned his second Division Two championship medal.

In 1970 after making 104 appearances in claret and amber and scoring 15 goals, John Prentice brought him to Dens Park in exchange for the unsettled Billy Campbell. The winger was to spend almost five years at Dens and though he may not have reached the same heights in the scoring department, his experience was invaluable for the youngsters in the side.

Unfortunately for him, he missed out on the 1973 League Cup triumph to deny him that elusive winners medal, but he did reacquaint himself with European football, turning out in a total of six ties.

All told, he made 140 appearances, scoring 14 times for the Dark Blues, the last of which was a 3-1 defeat at East End Park at the end of October 1974.

Whilst at Dens, he also played for Martizburg of South African during the summer months.

Falkirk were his final senior club for whom he made 36 appearances and scored six times before retiring in 1976. After leaving Brockville he became player manager of Elgin City and was also later assistant manager to namesake and Dundee colleague Bobby at Keith.
