Date of birth
Matt Ingram joined Hull City from Queens Park Rangers in June 2019, signing an initial three-year deal at the MKM Stadium.
Born in High Wycombe, the custodian joined hometown club Wycombe Wanderers as a youngster and, while still a first-year scholar, Ingram was called up to the first-team squad for the Chairboys' League Two match against Shrewsbury Town in September 2010, appearing on the substitutes' bench.
A work experience spell with Isthmian League Premier Division club Lewes followed in early 2012 before his progress and development was rewarded with a first professional contract in May 2012.
Loan spells at Conference South club Hayes & Yeading United and Conference North club Oxford City followed during the 2012/13 season, which saw him make a total of 21 appearances, before being handed his first-team debut for Wycombe against Accrington Stanley in March 2013.
He went on to make 139 appearances for the Chairboys in all competitions, with his impressive form between the posts securing a move to Queens Park Rangers in January 2016. Ingram only featured in two games for the R’s in the remainder of the 2015/16 season but did manage to keep two clean sheets in those appearances.
Chances were again limited the following campaign and Ingram spent the first half of 2017/18 on loan at Northampton Town, making 20 appearances before being recalled in January, playing twice for QPR in the latter stages of the campaign.
More frustration followed in 2018/19 as he was limited to just seven appearances in all competitions, also featuring once for Wycombe after returning to his former club on an emergency loan deal in November 2018.
After making four appearances for the Tigers in 2019/20, Ingram was virtually ever-present in 2020/21 as he played a key role in helping Grant McCann’s side make an immediate return to the Championship by securing the League One title.
