Galway United manager John Caulfield said of the player: Wilson is another player that has come through the academy system at the club, he came in and did really well for me last season.


“We all know he’s a tremendously talented player, he’s got a very good touch and real raw pace. He’s a young player, so there are still aspects he needs to add to his game, but he has the potential to be a top player and he wants to learn and improve.”


On his part, the player said: “I really enjoyed my football last season. When John came in, you could see we were hungry to get results and we went on a great run then. I feel like for next season my job is to keep progressing by getting into the starting lineup as much as possible.”
