Wilson started two games for H&W Welders during the month as Paul Kee’s men enjoyed a fruitful festive period.

The versatile player started in the win against Dergview, as well as the 2-1 defeat against Newington.

However, Wilson wasn’t involved as the Welders edged out Dergview yet again, as well as missing the east Antrim derby win against Dundela.

Those recent results means the Welders have jumped off the foot of the table and will face Newry City in the fifth round of the Irish Cup.
