Lawson D’Ath, like a number of other players over the years, joined Exeter City on loan from Reading. He later played for a number of clubs most notably Northampton and Yeovil.Lawson was a prolific goalscorer for Reading’s reserve and Academy teams making his first team debut in the FA Cup Third Round in January 2012 against Stevenage. The following month Lawson went on loan to Yeovil Town staying until the end of the season. His next loan spell at Cheltenham Town, from October 2012 to January 2013, saw him score on his debut in a 3-0 home win over Exeter City.
In March 2013 Lawson found himself on loan at St James Park, again scoring on his debut in the game against Bradord City on 16 March 2013. This proved to be the only goal of Lawson's eight-match Exeter career. He returned to Reading at the end of the season.
Lawson was loaned out once more by Reading, to Dagenham & Redbridge, before being released to join Northampton Town in August 2014. From Sixfields he went to Luton Town in January 2017 and MK Dons in June 2018. Leaving the Buckinghamshire club in 2019 Lawson returned to Huish Park, seven years after his earlier loan, where he sustained a series of injuries. Yeovil released him in 2021 pending the outcome of surgery, but after a successful period of rehabilitation, Lawson signed another contract with Yeovil in January 2022 and remained with the Somerset club in 2022/23. He left at the end of the season following the Glovers' relegation to National League South and joined Banbury United.
