Wisdom was named in the starting line-up for his new side’s National League North clash with King’s Lynn Town a day after joining.
He played the full 90 minutes as the Yellows won 1-0 to move up to 14th in the table.
Mark Beesley’s side are newly-promoted to the sixth-tier after finishing second in the Northern Premier League last season.
Speaking to the BBC after the match, Wisdom explained: “It was really good to play my first 90 minutes in a while today, thanks to Warrington, the manager and all the lads who’ve worked with me.”
Prior to joining Warrington, Wisdom had been a free agent since leaving Derby in 2021.
He had previously admitted his career has not been the same since he was the victim of an armed attack three years ago.
Wisdom was stabbed in the head during a mugging which saw a gang steal his watch.
The 30-year-old started his senior career with Liverpool and made 48 Premier League appearances across spells with the Reds, West Brom and Norwich.

He also went out on loan to Derby and Red Bull Salzburg during his time at Anfield.
The former England under-21 international was later sold to the Rams in 2017 and stayed with the club for four years before his exit in 2021.
