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.

Mr Mason has been an infrequent visitor to Fulham in recent years his most recent visit was in March this year when he refed Fulham's 2-1 away win at Derby County when he booked Johansen (60,f) and Mitrovic (74,f).

Prior to that game he had only refed Fulham twice since our relegation from the Premiership,one in 2016 and one in 2014

Mr Mason last refed Reading in April 2015 when they were beaten 1-0 at home by Birmingham. Mr Mason only waved one yellow card and that went to a Reading player.

Last season he reffed 25 games and dished out 96 yellows and 3 reds, so a slightly above average 3.8 yellows per game. This season so far the numbers are 21 games 57 yellows and 3 reds so a less agressive average of 2.7 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.
