After starting her football career at Belnorth in 1987, it didn’t take long for Amy Wilson’s ability to shine through. She was selected for the ACT rep training squad at an U14 level and soon moved through to the Australian U16 squad after the Nationals in Bendigo.
In 1995, Wilson became the youngest player to be selected for the Matildas at 15 and toured New Zealand, the start of an international career that lasted eight years, spanning the 1999 and 2003 FIFA World Cups. The teenage prodigy retired at the age of 23 in 2003.
In 2010, she was also appointed as assistant coach of Canberra United before making a comeback with Belconnen United in the Capital Football’s NPLW in 2011, playing three seasons before retiring for a second time in 2014.
