Mason Greenwood


An exciting striker who was top scorer in the Under-18 Premier League North in 2017/18, while still a schoolboy and being eligible for Under-16 level.

The enterprising forward is equally adept with both feet and capable of creating chances out of nothing. Evolving from a no.10 to more of a centre-forward, he looked the part as the cutting edge of an exciting team. He finished the season with 17 goals from 17 starts, plus a further four outings as a substitute, and was awarded Player of the Tournament when the Reds won the ICGT trophy in the Netherlands, despite being the youngest member of the squad. A call-up for the senior squad's Tour 2018, presented by Aon, in the United States showed the high regard in which he is held as he enjoyed playing and working under Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff, including his former Under-18s boss Kieran McKenna. An England Under-18 international who is extremely well thought of, it will be interesting to see if he can maintain his impressive level of progress in 2018/19. After a goal-filled start to the campaign for the Under-18s, and the Under-19s in the UEFA Youth League, it was announced on 2 October that Mason has signed his first professional contract with the club.
