DANE Ingham relocated from Ballina to Brisbane with the aim to improve his football, his goal to follow his older brother Jai in to Brisbane Roar ranks.

Jai is currently on the books at the Roar, a member of their Youth Squad.

Dane, at 15 years of age, studies at Cavendish Road State High in Brisbane’s South East and is coached, at the school, by Roar’s youth assistant coach Joel Smith.

“I was traveling two hours to Brisbane (last year) every night for training so it became a bit too hard,” Dane explained.

“So I moved to Brisbane, it made it easier to get to training and all that.

“I’d like to play A-League in the future.”

Early this month Dane demonstrated his football ability by being named player of the National Final in the Bill Turner Cup in Newcastle.

Cavendish Road beat Hunter Sports High, from the City of Lake Macquarie, 4-0 to lift the Bill Turner Cup for the first time.

“We were a bit shaky at the start but the goals (two in the first half) switched the momentum our way,” Dane, who scored twice, said.
