Not surprised at the presence of England that high at all. In fact, I expected it to be higher...
The highest tier of Welsh football, the Welsh Premier League, only has 12 teams and it's semi-professional. i.e most players don't play football for a living, but have other jobs in the week (I think only one club has a full-time squad - The New Saints). 12 teams means only 132 players can start at any time .I know clubs will have more than 11 registered players, but even so I find it very hard to believe that there are 143 'professional' English players in the Welsh Premier League (although how to define "English/Welsh" - if mum is Welsh but dad English, are you English/Welsh?), so presumably some play at lower levels which are barely semi-pro. Very few players from England would move to Wales to make a living from playing football professionally
Not sure it's worth updating for 4 years old data.
Please let me know if there is a better source.
