Lowest moment in football

Jack Wilson during his Athersley Rec days, watched by mentor Jason Dodsworth, a man with an eye for talent and who later signed him at Nostell

Lowest I’ve felt is not getting a chance at Rec always overlooked. I regret not giving it a good go when I was younger lost interest in it a lot so didn’t put as much effort in as I should of done.  

Funniest Moment in Football

Seeing Cal Rollinson get naked on the team bus and singing karaoke. Him and jack Mawson, the thickest two people you’ll ever meet, laughs after laughs with them.      

First semi-professional football manager

Ex-Athersley chief Sean Margison was Jack Wilson’s first Non League manager

my first manager was margy (Sean Margison) at Rec. He was a good guy and great coach.

Non League Debut 

I made my debut against Worksop for Rec we got beat 5-0 Jack Briscoe got sent of in the first 10 minutes. First time I’d played in midfield at this level to and ended up getting man of the match.

First and Best Non League Goal 

Jack Wilson scoring against Hall Road in 2019

My first goal was for Worsbrough against Yorkshire Amateur (17th February 2018). Jack Mawson cut a ball back to edge of the area and I caught it on half volley straight into roof of the net. That was probably my best too as I don’t score that many.

What do you want to achieve in football in the future?

  I want to win promotion or a trophy with a team then later on go into management but we’ll see about that.  

Favourite Non League Ground

Jack Wilson’s first Non League break was under Lee Morris at Worsbrough Bridge

Parkgate it’s always nice to go to top quality pitch, joy to play on.
