Former Chelsea apprentice Ellie Mason is proving to be one of the best acquisitions of last summer’s transfer window with the player having made a real positive impact at latest club London City Lionesses.
The 24-year-old moved to Princes Park after leaving former top flight side Yeovil Town and she was handed the captain’s armband by her new club.
Mason has not looked back since joining The Pride. She has rewarded London City Lionesses for their decision to make her captain by playing every single minute of FA Women’s Championship football so far this season. She has also netted goals against Lewes and Aston Villa. The midfielder is just one of two London City Lionesses players to appear in every game, Finnish forward Juliette Kemppi is the other, although she has twice been introduced as a substitute.
The dependability of Mason has been crucial for The Pride in what is their first season in the FA Women’s Championship following a much-documented rebrand last summer. With so many new players coming into the club, the London City Lionesses needed a reliable character to lead the team and they have certainly got that in Mason.
The Dartford-based club, who currently occupy fourth place in the FA Women’s Championship table, certainly had a good idea of what they were getting when signing Mason. The player also featured in every league game for previous clubs Millwall Lionesses and Yeovil Town while she was a top scorer for former second tier side Watford at just 19 years of age.
Having a strong and reliable leader on the pitch is an important factor for the potential success of any side and in Mason, the London City Lionesses have acquired the services of a player who can help their drive for Barclays FA Women’s Super League football in future seasons.
