Andrew Nesbit Wilson (14 February 1896 – 15 October 1973) was a Scottish international footballer who played for Middlesbrough, Heart of Midlothian, Dunfermline Athletic, Chelsea, Queens Park Rangers and Sporting Club Nîmois.

Wilson was born in Newmains, Lanarkshire and joined Middlesbrough from junior side Cambuslang Rangers in 1914 but his early career was interrupted by the First World War, during which he guested for Hearts. When the War ended, he played with Dunfermline Athletic when they were part of the rebel Central League, a body outside of Scottish Football League jurisdiction. When this league was absorbed by the SFL in 1921, those players previously contracted to a Scottish or English league side were obliged to return to whichever side held their registration as part of the agreement. Thus Wilson returned to Middlesbrough in time for the 1921-22 season.

After a season in which he was the League's top scorer, Wilson joined Chelsea in November 1923 for £6,500, ending the 1923-24 season as both Middlesbrough and Chelsea's top scorer. He made 253 appearances for Chelsea and scored 52 goals in the next eight years before joining QPR in 1931. After a two-season sojourn in France, he would briefly manage Walsall before accepting a series of coaching positions, including at Chelsea and Gravesend and Northfleet.

Wilson was capped 12 times by Scotland between 1920 and 1923, averaging a goal per appearance.

Wilson was also proficient at several other sports. He had a single-figure golf handicap, compiled century breaks at snooker and played bowls internationally for England.
