13 February 2018 : Former Glovers Loanee Mason Retires From Football After Head Injury
Former Yeovil Town loanee Ryan Mason has announced his plans to retire from professional football. The 26 year old Hull City player, who spent the second half of the 2009-10 season on loan at Huish Park from Tottenham Hotspur, has been forced to hang up his boots, following a serious head injury sustained in January 2017, when he fractured his skull in a collision with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill.

Mason required surgery immediately after the game, and has not played for any team since that day. He has been given further tests and advice from a number of experts, who have told him that it would not be in his best interests to return to competitive football. A statement from Hull City says:

"Ryan has sought the guidance of numerous world renowned neurologists and neuro surgeons who have all advised that a return to competitive football is not advised. Ryan would like to put on record his thanks to all at the Club who have aided his recovery to this point and he his is indebted to them for their support and compassion over the past 12 months."

Given Ryan's obvious talent as a player, we only hope that he can stay in the game and eventually become a football coach. However, clearly his personal health had to come first, for himself and for his family.
