Wilson has been with Ecclesfield for over 18 months after arriving as a player under Jon Wragg.

He enjoyed an illustrious Non League career, playing for the likes of Harrogate Town and Alfreton Town.

Young has started eight times as a player this season and was involved in their promotion year in 2019.
