Eddie Ingram played for Ireland 48 times between 1928 and 1955, being captain on eight occasions. He scored 1,628 runs, average 20.09, and dismissed 151 batsmen at a cost of 20.11 runs each. 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.
