Tom Wylie from Darvel was a professional footballer who played for Dumfries club Queen of the South F.C. and Blackburn Rovers.

Tom Wylie made nine appearances and scored three goals for Queens. He moved from Queen of the South to Blackburn Rovers in 1921. Wylie was the third of the three players to make such a move in a short time frame along with Jimmy McKinnell and Willie McCall. This along with the transfer of Ian Dickson to Aston Villa helped fund Queens' purchase of Palmerston Park.[1]

Wylie left Rovers in 1926 after 174 top league and 17 FA Cup appearances. Wylie was a left back.[2]
