Ryan Mason childhood and family

Ryan Mason was born on the 13th day of June 1991 to his mother, Lisa Mason and father, Glen Mason as their only children in Enfield, a large town located in north London, England.

Ryan Mason childhood

was spent growing up under the impression of parents who were surrounded by a magical aura of football passion which led him to fall deeply in love with the game too. Very soon, he ardently aspired to become a professional footballer in the future.

His parents Glen and Lisa, lived in a middle-class London home and they supported a big London club far away from Enfield - their place of residence. You might suspect that it was Tottenham but rather,


FC is the answer. They were big season ticket holders of the London based football club.

In terms of Ryan Mason Education, he attended the popular London Enfield Grammar School that was founded in 1558. When he reached his youth period, he attended Cheshunt School.

Back then he was very active in school to such an extent that he was one of few students who won his school’s District hurdles champion; while he also was getting trained at Tottenham's academy training ground, which was very close to his school.

As an average player, he went through the Spurs youth setup successfully. But when he got to the age of 18 in the year of his academy graduation, his football journey reached a crucial turning point.

In the 2008-09 season, he topped the Under-18 goalscoring charts with an amazing 29 goals in 31 appearances. He finally ended up netting 42 goals for the under-18s that season.

You might have taken the hint that this is the due time for him to prepare himself for attending their first team, but you would not think that way if you have known that there came a problem.

In fact, his body was still developing and that late growth prevented him from joining the senior team. In light of a strict physical fitness routine, he managed to be recovered from his body problem.

Then, he began playing in the Tottenham reserve team in order to be warmed up for a first-team- debut. After hitting three goals in five games for the Reserves, his first-team debut occurred as he appeared as a late substitute in the UEFA Cup in November 2008. Afterwards, he earned a place in the squad in February 2009 and got contracted his first professional deal a year later.

With his impressive performance for Terry Skiverton's men at the start of the 2009–10 season, the loan deal was promoted to a further three months. Then on 13 March 2010, he was recalled permanently, following his playing 28 league matches and scoring six goals for Yeovil.

On 23 March 2015, he was called up for the first time to the senior England team for a European qualifier against Lithuania and a friendly against Italy, after Adam Lallana's withdrawal in the face of injury.
