Referee Lee Mason started refereeing when he was 17 years old in the Bolton Boys' Federation League. He became a Football League referee in 2002 and joined the Premier League list of Select Group Referees in 2006.

Mr Mason has been involved in a number of controvertial decisions including one involving Fulham.

In 2009 he was handed a one-week demotion to the role of fourth official after his handling of a match between Fulham and Liverpool in which he sent off Liverpool players Jamie Carragher and Philipp Degen; Fulham ultimately won the fixture 3–1. As a point of interest one week later 10 man Fulham were robbed of victory in Rome, playing in the Europa Cup.

Fulham last had the pleasure of Mr Mason's company back in October 2016 when Fulham were beaten 2-1 at home by QPR, he booked two Fulham players, Malone and Ream, and three QPR players.

Prior to that game Mr Mason had stayed away from Fulham for nearly two years. His visit was in August 2014 when we were beaten 1-0 at home by Millwall. He booked three players, all from Fulham, Hoogland, Bodurov, Stafylidis.

Mr Mason last reffed Derby in their 1-1 home draw with Sheffield Wednesday in April 2015. He booked NINE players, five from Derby. He refed Derby three times in that season and each match ended a draw

Last season he reffed 25 games and dished out 96 yellows and 3 reds, so a slightrly above average 3.8 yellows per game. This season so far the numbers are 19 games 48 yellows and 3 reds so a less agressive average of 2.5 yellows per game.

Ref Mason's busiest game this season so far was Chelsea versus Bournemouth when he yellow carded four players on each team.
