Len Evans of Barry Town (Southern league- Western Division) was the only player not currently playing in the Football League, though he had previous League experience at Aberdare Athletic and Merthyr Town and had represented Wales 4 times.
The absence of Swansea Town players can be explained by the fact that the Swans only had a handful of Welshmen in their first team. Only one Swansea player was awarded a Welsh cap in the seasons 1928-29 and 1929-30.
