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 9 man Fulham were robbed of victory in Rome, playing in the Europa Cup.

Mr Mason has been an infrequent visitor to Fulham games only refing four games in five years and two of those games were last season.

The last of which was the 1-0 home win against Reading in April 2018 when he booked one player from each team, the Fulham player was Matt Targett, booked for a foul in the 60th minute. Targett also set up the 25th minute goal by Stefan Johansen.

Mr Mason's other game last season was 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 West Ham in December 2018 when they were beaten 2-0 at home by Watford. Mr Mason waved his yellow card five times, three of them from West Ham .

Last season he reffed 26 games and dished out 72 yellows and 4 reds, so a below average 2.7 yellows per game. This season so far the numbers are 23 games 68 yellows and 2 reds so a slightly higher average of 3.0 yellows per game.

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