He also played for Leinster. His name was always linked in Irish cricket circles with that of J. C. Boucher, with whom he was at Belvedere College and played for Ireland for 25 years. Coming to England, Ingram joined the Ealing Club in 1936 and altogether took over 3,000 wickets for them with varied bowling of impeccable length besides regularly scoring 1,000 runs a season. A great character of Pickwickian girth, he also gained a cap for Middlesex.
