Ingram is currently on loan at Sky Bet League Two side Salford City for the 2023/24 season.

Ethan has played at both senior and international level during his time at The Hawthorns.

The flying full-back continues to bring on his skills in the Baggies' PL2 side while also training in Albion's senior team, and the defender made his second first-team appearance during the 2022/23 season after starting against Derby in the Carabao Cup.

Ingram made his senior debut at The Hawthorns during a Carabao Cup defeat to top-flight side Arsenal in August 2021, received several important lessons during a full year training with the first team, and rounded off the 2021/22 season by scoring the winning penalty against rivals Wolves to win Albion the Premier League Cup in May 2022. 

Ethan was recruited by one of the Baggies' development centres at the age of 12.

The Gloucester-born defender did two years at the Baggies' training centre in the south west, before being brought up to the academy to trial with Albion where his talent shone through to be offered a first-year scholarship at the end of the Under-16s season.

From there, the defender has gone from strength-to-strength through the club's youth ranks, proving to be a reliable defensive and attacking outlet down the right flank. Ingram's pace and power down the wing are both ever-present attributes in his game. 

The full-back enjoyed a memorable campaign during the 2020/21 season, starting every game in Albion’s FA Youth Cup run to the semi-finals and earning several starts in the club’s PL2 side. The right wing-back signed his first professional contract in the summer of 2021, before playing a regular role in Richard Beale's Under-23s over the 2021/22 campaign.

The defender has been recognised on the international stage, receiving his first call-up to the England U18s squad during the international break in March 2021. He earned his first start for the Young Lions, featuring in the 2-0 friendly win over Wales that month. 

And following the conclusion of the 2020/21 season, Ingram was included in the England U19s squad along with fellow Albion team-mate Rico Richards for a training camp in May ahead of the 2022 U19 European Championships.

He has since represented the Young Lions in the Costa Cálida Supercup, featuring for the U20s during the tournament in September 2022.
