Craig Mawson (born 16 May 1979 in Keighley, West Yorkshire) is an English footballer who works as a goalkeeping coach for Burnley.



Mawson started his career at Burnley, where he is now goalkeeper coach to the Under 18's side at the club, in a part-time role.

Lincoln City[edit]

In September 2000, Lincoln City's manager Phil Stant signed Mawson on-loan as cover for his first-choice keeper Alan Marriott.[1] Whilst the loan was extended to a second month,[2] Mawson would remain an unused substitute in each of Lincoln's nine league games during this period before returning to Burnley.

Other clubs[edit]

Mawson has also played for Morecambe and Oldham Athletic. Whilst at Christie Park he was voted Player of the Year by the supporters for the 2002-03 season, when he notably saved two penalties in the semi-final of the Conference playoffs. However the team failed to progress to the final.

Following the liquidation of Halifax Town, Mawson signed a deal with Conference North team Droylsden.


On 2 July 2010, he signed for Droylsden's rivals Hyde.[3] He was due to make his Hyde debut on 17 July 2010 against Manchester City Reserves, but unexpectedly flew out to Singapore and had to be replaced by Brynn Hindley.[4]

Return to Burnley[edit]

On 1 September 2010 Mawson signed for Burnley[5] as a coach for the youth team.

Mawson was included in the reserve team on 27 October 2010 against Macclesfield and is a regular starter for the reserve team.
