Mason currently resides in London, having moved there after leaving Ards. He was asked by BBC Radio Essex what he planned to do now he was the boss. He responded “Currently I am only the interim manager until the end of the season. There’s no point of me moving the whole family down here until things are certain for next season. For now I shall commute down here every morning”
