Irish players in the Championship 2015/16

2 Shares

Earlier this week we compiled a list of Premier League players from Ireland but there are plenty of Boys in Green operating outside the gilder corridors of the English top tier. In fact of late our attentions have become increasingly focused on the English Championship as the Irish have struggled to get a foothold in the Premiership.

Each championship side, apart from Middlesbrough, have green interest which means there is plenty to keep you entertained on the Football League show on Channel 5 each Saturday evening.
