Former Lennox Head player Dane Ingham, 17, made his Hyundai A-League debut on Saturday night for Brisbane Roar as part of their starting line-up and played the full 90 minutes against Melbourne City.

As a junior, Ingham played for Lennox Head and was part of the FFNC representative program from age 10 to 13.

Amongst those who have watched Dane’s progression with great pride, is local mentor Gavin Whitney, who has been a positive influence on his development.

“Dane is an example of a kid who had a great work ethic as a young lad and he richly deserves his opportunities”, Whitney said.

Ingham moved to the QLD PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues several years ago, having previously played for NNSWF (Country) at the FFA National Championships when he was 13. He follows big brother Jai, who is currently with Melbourne Victory.

Dane was also named in the young Socceroos development squad which was announced a couple of weeks ago.

This story is another great example for the local kids with aspirations to see what is possible, regardless of where you come from.

CONGRATULATIONS Dane and we wish you the very best with your football career.
