Today's Lawrie Wilson Talking Points
Lawrie Robert Wilson (born 11 September 1987) is an English footballer who plays for Bolton Wanderers.
Wilson started his career at Charlton Athletic, and played regularly for the club's Under-18 side and reserve team until he was released in 2006. He joined Colchester United ahead of the 2006–07 season, but did not make any first-team appearances during his one-year stay with the club. During his time at Colchester he was loaned out to Conference South side Welling United, making a handful of appearances during his one-month loan spell.
Wilson signed for Hertfordshire side Stevenage in August 2007, and featured regularly for the club for two seasons, playing in the club's successful FA Trophy campaign in May 2009. However, he suffered a dislocated ankle and broken leg in three places in August 2009, ruling him out for eight months, but returned to first-team action in April 2010 as Stevenage won promotion to the Football League for the first time in the club's history. Wilson played a key part during the club's 2010–11 campaign, helping Stevenage earn promotion to League One. In July 2012, Wilson rejoined Charlton for an undisclosed fee. On 5 August 2015 he signed for Bolton Wanderers on a two-year deal.Close
