Teenage defender caps exciting few months with new Brisbane contract
Dane Ingham has extended his contract at Brisbane Roar after breaking into the first team for both club and country.
The 18-year-old New Zealand international became the second youngest player ever to score for Brisbane when he netted in a 2-2 draw against Perth in only his second appearance for the club.
The versatile full-back, who can also play as a winger, also recently featured for his country at the Confederations Cup in Russia.
Ingham said: “I’ve been at the Roar since I was 15 years old and I’m proud to extend my contract.
“It’s a great environment to be part of for a young player, and I want to continue to learn off the senior players in our squad.
“The last few months have been a dream come true for me.”
Brisbane head coach John Aloisi is delighted to retain the services of Ingham.
“It’s great news that a talented young player like Dane has committed his future to our club,” he said.
“A product of our youth system, Dane’s contract extension is reward for the hard work and the significant contribution he has already made to our side.”
