Mason Bradshaw shocked the world last year when he announced at just the tender age of 24, he was to start managing – and he proved the critics wrong by managing in Scottish Ladbrokes League 2 as Stirling boss (although he did only last 10 games) before finishing his career at Ards, before retiring from management due to personal circumstances, since being revealed due to his fiancee being pregnant with twins… now Mason is back!
After taking a six month break from football to look after his pregnant fiancee, Mason Bradshaw returned to the game he loved becoming First Team Coach at Vanarama South club, Braintree.
Braintree are in bad form this season, currently sitting 23rd in the league, the club needs to stay in the 6th tier of English football if the club is to survive.
To make matters worse, their manager has just walked out of the club to join their rivals, and now it’s up to Mason to save Braintree FC…
That’s right, Mason has returned to football management, and he is the interim manager of Braintree FC. He has one mission. To keep the club in the sixth tier of English football.
Mason spoke of his appointment to Braintree TV, and said “I am delighted to return to football management, I never planned to leave last time but I’m delighted to be back managing.”
Mason currently resides in London, having moved there after leaving Ards, and he was asked by BBC Radio Essex what he planned to do now he was the boss, and he responded “Currently I am only the interim manager until the end of the season, so there’s no point of me moving the whole family down here until things are certain for next season, so for now I shall commute down here every morning”
Mason tweeted about the commute on Twitter…
Mason has 11 games to save the club from relegation, and save the club from extinction. With just 32 points from 31 games, Mason will have his work cut out, but he’s going to give it his best shot.
