Ryton-on-Tyne, County Durham born goalkeeper Wilson Parker began his football career with Crawcrook Albion in 1927, joining Scotswood in 1928, from where he signed for Third Division (North) club Carlisle United, for whom he made his Football League debut against York City in January 1930. Initially understudy to George Prout and John Kelly, he broke into the team on a regular basis in September 1931, before Second Division club Bradford City signed him in March 1933 after 61 appearances for The Cumbrians.

He had six years at Valley Parade, and made 143 appearances for The Bantams, although he was rarely the outright first choice goalkeeper during his time at Bradford City, vying with the likes of Sam Warhurst and George Swindin for the goalkeeper’s gloves. He played his last match for The Bantams in February 1939, being displaced by James McCloy and making only 7 appearances that season, and the outbreak of the Second World War in September 1939 confirmed the end of his football career.
