Career

Wilson started playing snooker aged three and soon started showing promise. At the age of 8 he had already been put into a team performing in the local league, despite some clubs refusing to allow a kid to play. Aged 9, he made his first century, and appeared for the first time at the BBC1's snooker game show series Junior Big Break: Stars of the Future (he would make two more appearances at the show). He played exhibition matches with John Parrott and Willie Thorne and defeated Jimmy White and Ronnie O'Sullivan in level matches. Wilson went on to win a number of national titles, including the UK Under-18 championship twice, and was widely regarded as one of the most promising junior players in the country.

2014/2015
Wilson qualified for the 2014 Wuxi Classic, the opening ranking event of the season, where he lost 5–3 to Alan McManus in the first round. He couldn't regain his momentum from last year as he failed to progress beyond the last 64 stage of any tournament in the first half of the season.Wilson's breakthrough came in February at the Welsh Open, as he defeated Zhang Anda, John Astley and Joe Perry. He then knocked out Neil Robertson 4–2 to reach his first major quarter-final, stating afterwards that he had proven that he could handle the big occasions.Wilson took an early 2–1 lead against Ben Woollaston, but lost four frames in a row to be beaten 5–2.In the opening round of the Indian Open, Wilson was edged out 4–3 by Adam Duffy.

2015/2016
Wilson could not build on last year's exploits during the 2015/2016 season. He lost in the qualifiers for the first three ranking events. He beat Martin O'Donnell 6–3 at the UK Championship, before being defeated 6–4 by Martin Gould in the second round. Wilson reached the same stage of the Welsh Open, but lost 4–1 to Liang Wenbo. He qualified for the China Open and was knocked out 5–3 by Stephen Maguire in the opening round.

2016/2017
At the Indian Open, Wilson overcame Zhao Xintong 4–1 and Anthony Hamilton 4–2, before losing 4–2 to Akani Songsermsawad. His only last 16 appearance of the season so far came at the Northern Ireland Open courtesy of knocking out Peter Lines 4–0, Andrew Higginson 4–3 and Sam Baird 4–3. Wilson was defeated 4–3 by Mark Allen. Wilson qualified for the China Open and beat Graeme Dott 5–3, before losing 5–1 to Shaun Murphy.
