Signed from Frickley Colliery in July 1920, George Mason was United’s first-choice right
winger in their initial season in the Football League and featured in the first League game
and all but seven of the rest. He vied with Walter Coates for the Outside Right position in
the club’s second season but in the third was eventually edged out by Alan Noble. In June
1923 he went to Swindon Town, but they released him in May 1924, after only one appearance.
His one appearance for them was at Outside-Right in a 0-1 defeat at Reading on 27th October
1923. He died in Durham in July 1987.
