Laurie is the son of Danny Wilson, former manager of Barnsley, Bristol City, Sheffield Wednesday and now something called MK Dons. Wilson junior played under him at Wednesday but failed to make the breakthrough into the first team and eventually left to join Burton Albion at the end of the 03-04 season.
He was never really accepted there and went out on loan to Grantham and then Belper. He was released from Burton at the end of his one season there and joined the Harriers in July 2005 after Stuart Watkiss proclaimed him as 'one for the future'.
Laurie Wilson eventually left Aggborough in March 2006 after being yet another player that failed to excite us.
