Ryan Mason born June 13, 1991
Enfield-born Ryan joined Tottenham Hotspur’s Academy as an eight-year-old and signed professional forms in 2008. After spending the 2009-10 season on loan at Yeovil Town, Ryan joined Rovers on loan in August 2010, making his debut in a 1-1 home draw against Bristol City.
After playing in five games he returned to Tottenham, but he came back in January 2011, helping struggling Rovers to avoid relegation from the Championship. He returned at the start of the 2011-12 season and scored his first Rovers goal in a League Cup win over Tranmere Rovers.
Unfortunately, he was injured in that game and following the sacking of manager Sean O’Driscoll he found opportunities limited. His loan was eventually terminated and in January 2012 he went to Millwall on loan, along with Harry Kane.
Ryan established himself at Spurs in 2014-15 and later that season won a full England Cap. In August 2016 he signed for Hull City and in January 2017 he suffered a fractured skull in a match against Chelsea which forced his retirement.
He now works for Spurs as a youth coach. His Rovers record was 20 appearances and one goal.
