Mayson started with North Eastern League Walker Celtic, before moving to Second Division Burnley in 1907. He stayed four seasons at Turf Moor, playing sixty-seven League games and scoring fourteen times, one of which was from the penalty spot. He also scored three times in four F.A. Cup ties. He moved to Second Division Grimsby Town in 1911 for 350, a club record at the time. However he certainly repaid that money with some class performances, despite fracturing his leg in 1912. He had three seasons with the Cleethorpes side making eighty-five League appearances and scoring twenty-eight goals, one of which was a penalty, while in the F.A. Cup he scored once in four appearances. Mayson also had the honour of being a guest player for Leeds City during World War one. Usually an Inside Left, he played almost all his games for Leeds at Outside Left, with just four in his usual position. He moved on to First Division Everton in 1919, scoring on his only appearance for the Toffees. He did not stay long at Goodison Park, joining Non-League Pontypridd in 1920 and playing just one season before coming back into the Football League with Second Division Wolverhampton Wanderers but only made two League appearances in the 1921-22 season. He finished his career at Third Division South Aberdare Athletic when he scored four times in nineteen appearances in the 1922-23 season. He died in 1972.
