Jai Ingham joins SMFC for the 2022 season

South Melbourne FC is thrilled to announce the signing of Jai Ingham for the upcoming 2022 NPL Victorian season.

Ingham is a name familiar to football fans in Australia having played in the A-League with the Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Victory, including forming part of Victory’s Championship winning attack during the 2017-18 season. He also had a stint prior to this at Hume City where he reached the FFA Cup Quarter Final alongside Marcus Schroen.

Most recently he spent time in the Philippines, before a very short stint back in his native Queensland with the Gold Coast Knights.

The four-time New Zealand international will add substantial quality to the South attacking line-up and will be looking to have an immediate impact for the club, be it on either wing or as a striker.

Speaking to smfc.com.au, SMFC Senior Football Director Andrew Mesourouni was pleased with his latest acquisition. “I’m pleased to announce to our members and fans that the 2022 squad is complete with the arrival of Jai Ingham. He is no stranger when it comes to football in Australia, having played many years in the A league with Victory and Brisbane Roar and appearing in league and Asian champions league matches. A big player now signing with the most historical club in the country. I personally welcome him to South and wish him all the success this season.

Jai will link up with the squad this coming week.
