By Arthur James O'Dea

After battling on as best he could, Hull City's Ryan Mason was forced into early retirement this week.

Having fallen victim to a fractured skull following a collision with Chelsea's Gary Cahill in January 2017, Mason has subsequently been left with "no option" but to retire for the good of his health.

Only 26-years-old, Mason's departure gave cause to widespread sympathy from a number of his fellow professionals.

When Tottenham Hotspur undertook their FA Cup 5th round tie this evening away to Rochdale, the fans of the club Mason came through as an academy graduate were equally adamant in demonstrating that he would be in their hearts and minds; singing Mason's name aloud often.

During a game that Spurs will look back upon as one that should have been put away, a 2-1 lead with only a few minutes left was squandered and Spurs must now play out a second FA Cup replay against lower-league opposition.
