Tameside Stadium, home of Curzon Ashton Football Club.

The 25-year-old, who has had a previous spell at the Spireites, had been training with the club and was set to sign on loan from the National League North side until the end of the season.

It is believed the original terms for the loan deal was for Town to cover Mason’s wages but then Curzon apparently also wanted a loan fee which the Blues refused to pay.

The Nash today announced that he will be released when his contract expires at the end of the season.

The deal now looks unlikely to happen unless Curzon release him before next week’s player registration deadline on Thursday, April 22.

He was spotted at Chesterfield’s match at Eastleigh over Easter.

Mason was part of Town’s youth system in 2013 before joining Curzon seven years ago, where he has remained ever since.

He has made more than 150 appearances for the Nash and was named the manager’s player of the year in 2020.

The stopper came through the youth ranks at Oldham Athletic and has been capped at England C level.

Curzon’s website describes him as ‘somewhat of a Nash legend, establishing himself as the club's number one on the pitch, and popular with supporters off of it’.

In a statement Curzon said: “The club can confirm agreement with the manager and Cameron Mason to release him from his contract at the end of the season.

“Everyone at the club wishes him well in his ambitions to play full-time and thank him for everything he has contributed in his time at Curzon.”
