Sheffield Wednesday's top 30 players - Number 1

Sheffield Wednesday 2

HITC Sport's countdown of the Owls' greatest ever players concludes with Andrew Wilson.

Andrew Wilson scored more goals and made more appearances than any player in Sheffield Wednesday history - collecting more trophies than most.

The Scottish striker arrived at Hillsborough from Clyde for a reported £200 fee at the turn of the 20th Century, and ended his first season as the Owls' top scorer with 13.

In his third campaign, though he was outscored by Harry Davis, Wilson helped Wednesday to the First Division title - a feat they repeated the following season, with the then 23-year-old returning to the top of the club's scoring chart.

Three years later, during the 1906-07 campaign, the Owls dropped out of the top half for the first time since their relegation in 1899, however Wilson was part of Arthur Dickinson's team that lifted the FA Cup that year - which wasn't a bad consolation.

Wednesday faced the holders Everton at Crystal Palace and beat them courtesy of goals from Jimmy Stewart and George Simpson, either side of Jack Sharp's equaliser.

That season saw Wilson surpass the 20-goal mark for the very first time, though he was already prolific by then. And while Wednesday may not have failed to secure any more silverware throughout his Hillsborough career, the Scot cannot be accused of shirking his responsibilities.

Wilson was top scorer in eight of his 15 full seasons overall, with English football's four-year war-time hiatus no doubt preventing that number increasing.

When it returned, in time for the 1919-20 campaign, Wilson played one last time for the Owls before hanging up his boots.

At 39 years and 91 days, Wilson was the club's oldest ever player and remained so until Trevor Francis' spell as player-manager 72 years later.
