Ingersoll, a full-forward, had a prolific season for Western Suburbs in 1956, breaking the NSW Australian Football Association record for most goals in a year. He kicked 101 goals in the home and away season, which included 15 and 17 goal hauls in successive weeks, against Balmain and St George respectively.[1][2]

He wrote his name into the record books again at Hawthorn, when he kicked a club record five goals on debut, in the opening round of the season, against Carlton at Princes Park.[3] By the end of the season he had kicked 33 goals, topping Hawthorn's goal-kicking and winning their "Best First Year Player" award.[4][5] He struggled for form in 1958 and was confined to the reserves for much of the year, before a family illness caused him to return to Sydney.[6]
