Club career

Mason began his career as a youth player with home-town club Plymouth Argyle at the age of 10. He was a regular scorer for the youth team and made the step up to reserve team football with similar ease, playing his part as the club won the Totesport.com Combination in 2009, with Mason as the club's top goalscorer.[1] He signed his first professional contract with the club in May 2009,[2] and immediately set about breaking into the club's first team, describing becoming a professional as a very proud moment.[3]

He began the 2009–10 season training with the first-team squad and again featured regularly for the club's reserves. He made his competitive debut, and his first start, for the club against Sheffield United at Home Park on 5 December 2009, playing for 65 minutes before being replaced by Craig Noone to a standing ovation.[4] He signed an extension to his contract with the club in January 2010 until the summer of 2012, with Paul Mariner commenting that the youngster has a very bright future.[5][6] He scored his first senior goal in the return fixture against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on 27 February 2010.[7]

International career

Despite being born and bred in England, Mason qualifies to represent the Republic of Ireland because his mother comes from County Mayo. He represented his country at Under-18 level before being called up to the Under-19 squad for the Clarion Hotel Four-Nation tournament and their qualifying games in the UEFA Under–19 European Championships.[8][9] He played in their 2–0 win against Turkey,[10] and their 1–0 defeat to Portugal as the Irish finished second, behind Holland.[11] He scored twice for the Republic in their 5–0 win against San Marino, and played a crucial role in their 2–0 win against Albania.[12][13] The Irish finished second in Group 1, behind Italy, who both qualify for the Elite round which takes place in May 2010.[14][15]
