FIFA 19 ratings: Former Welsh pyramid stars find out their rating
Club record signing at Millwall this summer and officially the best player from the Welsh pyramid system
That’s according to the latest instalment of EA Sports’ FIFA, which comes out later this month.
The former Barnsley striker who moved to London, has a 69 rated card, placing him as the best
Bradshaw previously played for Aberystwyth Town, coming through their youth academy, before joining Shrewsbury Town.
Gwion Edwards, a fellow Aber youth academy product is hot on his tails, with a 66 rating, after also earning a move to the Championship.
Edwards moved from Peterborough to Ipswich, scoring on his debut on the opening day of the season.
Andy Mangan who made two appearances for Bala Town in Europe this season, but failed to make an appearance in the Welsh Premier League, is given a respectable 62 rating.
Mangan plays at Accrington Stanley alongside former New Saints midfielder Sam Finley, who has been given a 58, the second joint lowest from the Welsh Exiles.
Christian Doidge, who made a seven-figure move to Bolton has been rated at 65, following his goalscoring exploits at League Two side Forest Green Rovers.
After spending three seasons at the New Saints, Steve Saunders moved back to Scotland.
His previous rating on FIFA 15 was 61, but since moving to the Scottish Premier League side, he’s had an increase of two, since his move.
Connell Rawlinson has yet to be put into the game, despite making seven appearances for Port Vale this summer. Rawlinson’s former TNS teammate and now current, Scott Quigley is just ahead of Oswell on a 58 rating. Quigley had a loan spell at Wrexham last season.
Jason Oswell, who made his Football League dream a reality, by signing for Morecambe after a high-scoring season with Morecambe, has been given a lowly 57 rating.
Dion Donohue, who has been in the Football League for three years now, recently used to turn out for Porthmadog, Holyhead Hotspur and then Caernarfon Town.
The 25-year-old now plays for Portsmouth under former Wales international Kenny Jackett. Donohue has been given a 63 rating.
Another former exile turned to the Football League is Scouseman Gary Roberts.
Having been in the youth set-up of Denbigh Town and Bala, the 34-year-old turned out for Rhyl, Bangor City and Welshpool before beginning a 12-year spell in the Football League.
The experienced full-back now plays in the Championship for Wigan Athletic.
