Biographical Text

This Scottish-born, centre-half started his professional career with Partick Thistle, after he had played for Peebles Rovers.

He moved to Gillingham for the 1926-27 season where he scored one goal in 19 league outings.
Joining Exeter City in the summer of 1927, he made his Grecians’ debut in a 5-0 defeat at Northampton Town the following September. He figured in 20 Third Division South matches for City in his first season at the club and netted once. Mason started the 1928-29 season in the City first team, but quickly lost his place and didn’t feature again until the last few games. He had travelled to play at Gillingham in October 1928, but was taken ill on the Friday night. As a result he had to be taken ‘home’ to Exeter on the morning of the match to receive medical treatment.

Mason was released at the end of the season and is believed to have joined the Metropolitan Police.

Samuel died in 1974.
