Crawley Town has announced the departure of left-back Brandon Mason via mutual consent, as confirmed via a statement on the club’s website.
The 25-year-old has ended his 12 months with the club and will now be on the lookout for a brand new chapter in his professional career after the two parties separated.
Who is Brandon Mason?
The left-back was a product of the Watford academy and also enjoyed a brief loan stint with SPFL side Dundee United. However, he made his name at Championship side Coventry City, playing a vital role as the club won the League One title in the 2019/20 season.
However, upon his release in 2021, Mason spent almost a year out before arriving at MK Dons and later Crawley Town. Last season, Mason made just 13 appearances for the football club, failing to contribute a goal or assist.
Aiming to improve
The 2022/23 season was a disappointing campaign for the League Two side as they were almost relegated to the National League if it wasn’t for a late change of form.
The club finished 22nd in the table, three points above the relegation zone. Crawley Town won just 11 of their 46 matches, losing 22 of them and conceded over 70 league goals. Therefore, the club will likely be aiming to improve next season.
What’s been said?
The League Two side released a short statement on their official website, posting a goodbye message which states…
‘Everybody at the club would like to thank Brandon for his efforts during his time at the Broadfield Stadium.’
As a Coventry fan, it’s sad to see Brandon Mason without a club again because he showed a lot of promise in League One and proved to be a reliable defender.
However, confidence plays a major role in football and it appears that this is a factor that has affected Mason. I hope he can find a permanent new home and recapture his old form.
