Biographical Text

An apprentice with Stockport County, Fred Ingham moved into the full professional ranks in April 1972. He scored one goal in 19 league outings for County. He was given a free transfer in August 1973 and signed for Blackburn Rovers.

Fred never made the Blackburn first team and had the misfortune to sustain a broken leg. He was eventually released, and joined Witton Albion, where he became their leading goalscorer. After leaving Witton Albion, Fred moved to the South-West and joined Falmouth Town where he scored 9 goals in 26 appearances during the 1976-77 season. He stayed  at Falmouth just for just one season.

He was signed by Exeter City on non-contract forms in September 1977, Fred had by that time been playing for Dawlish Town (as well as Falmouth Town).

He was given a full contract by the Grecians two months later, making a successful debut against Chester City, scoring in the 1-1 draw at St James’ Park.
Retained for the 1978-79 season, Fred only made two substitute appearances against Chester City and Tranmere Rovers respectively.
