Crawley Town Football Club is happy to announce the signing of 24-year-old wideman Brandon Mason on a two-year deal after he impressed coming off the bench in our pre-season friendly against Queen’s Park Rangers.
Mason made a quick impression on the Crawley fans with his dazzling runs on the left side, one of which resulted in a crucial penalty being won after he was fouled.
The 24-year-old has fantastic footballing experience, playing 36 times in League One, and twice in the Premier League as well as featuring frequently in the Scottish Premiership, FA Cup and EFL Cup amongst other leagues and competitions.
Mason started his professional career at Watford after graduating through the youth system, he notably made his debut in the Premier League on New Year’s Day of 2017 against Tottenham Hotspur, before he played again in the FA Cup against Burton Albion, claiming an assist to provide a goal for Christian Kabasele.
One year later Mason joined Dundee United, before signing a deal with League One Coventry City where he spent three years. During this spell Mason headed back to Scotland for a loan to St Mirren in 2020, where he played 90 minutes on the left of midfield in a side that defeated Steven Gerrard’s Rangers 3-2.
Brandon then spent three months at MK Dons last season.
On arrival, Mason told us: “I am over the moon to get the deal done. It has been in the pipeline for quite a while now, so it is nice to get it sorted. There are so many good things going on at Crawley at the moment. The new owners have come in as well as Kevin, who is looking to play a really exciting brand of football. I am looking forward to getting back and enjoying my football again.”
