He scored his debut league goal in his third appearance as a substitute on 16 August 2008 in a 3–1 home victory over Bognor Regis Town.[2] After promotion he was later released and joined Maidenhead United, this was short lived due to lack of playing time and he later joined Bishops Stortford.

Canvey Island won the trophy without conceding a goal throughout the competition [5]

On January 2013 he was on trial with Belgium side Union St. Gilloise but the move failed due to failing to agree terms. In June 2013 he joined Wingate & Finchley and made his debut on 10 August 2013 in a 4–0 victory over Carshalton Athletic.

On 26 October 2013, Mason opened his goalscoring account for Wingate & Finchley when he struck the opening goal in a 3-0 home victory over Bognor Regis Town.

Mason made his final appearance for Wingate & Finchley in a 1–0 home defeat to Leiston on 18 January 2014.

Despite not qualifying past the group stages, he helped Montserrat achieve their first victory since 1995 and their first ever victory since joining FIFA, beating the British Virgin Islands 7–0.[6]
