CITIZENS SNAP UP EX-MAN CITY DEFENDER
Bangor City have snapped up ex-Macclesfield Town captain Rae Ingram following his release from Port Vale at the end of last season.
The 29-year-old utility player is well known to Citizens boss Peter Davenport, as he managed him during his spell at Macclesfield. He signs from Port Vale, who released him after he suffered a multitude of injuries last season, including a serious bout of meningitis.
The Manchester-born defender has now fully recovered from his life-threatening condition, and impressed during his debut for Bangor in a 3-0 win over Poulton Victoria.
Ingram (pictured) spent five years with Manchester City but struggled to break into the first-team. He joined Macclesfield, intially on loan at the end of 1997/98 season, before completing a permanent move to Moss Rose that summer, going on to be named captain of the Division Three club under Davenport.
Ingram was then snapped up by Second Division Port Vale on a 'Bosman' free transfer, but despite starting the 2001/02 season at left back at Vale Park, injuries soon took their toll and he was replaced by Vale starlet Steve Rowland.
