His next move and final Football League club was to Preston North End in August 1993 where he featured six times in league games. Masefield followed that with brief spells back at Bromsgrove Rovers and then Limerick.

He then moved to Hong Kong, where he played for the Sing Tao Sports Club, as well as for a Hong Kong league All-Star team and although he never represented the official Hong Kong national side, he did take on the likes of Sampdoria, Inter Milan and the Yugoslavian national side in unofficial matches.

He finished off his career by playing professional football in Singapore with clubs such as Jurong F.C., Balestier Khalsa FC and Tanjong Pagar United FC.
