Southport’s new number one is Cameron Mason who has signed today from Curzon Ashton.
Manager Liam Watson said “I couldn’t believe it when I heard Cam had been released and he immediately became our number one target. He’s at a great age and a proven ‘keeper at this level. Cam will be a big signing for this football club”
Cam was Curzon Ashton’s longest serving player having joined the club on a free transfer in the summer of 2014, he went on to amass over 150 appearances for the club. As a youth he played for Oldham Athletic, before joining Chesterfield in July 2013. Whilst he was at the Spireites, Cam spent a short-term loan with Stockport before joining Curzon the following summer. His reputation at this level is high, shown by his inclusion in the England C squad in March 2020 – however a chance of a debut for his country was scuppered by the COVID-19 pandemic.
What a lot of people won’t know is Cam was on the bench for Southport in a game at Luton in the 2013/14 season brought in as emergency cover for one game but never played. He still has the shirt to prove it.
On signing Cam said “this will be a new challenge for me, I have had a fantastic time at Curzon they had a great set up and a great bunch of supporters but this move is a fresh opportunity to prove myself again and get back to enjoying my football.
