Conor Masterson (born 8 September 1998) is an Irish footballer who played as a centre-back for the Liverpool F.C. Academy.

Liverpool careerEdit

In the summer of 2013, Masterson joined the Liverpool Academy after impressing in the youth system at Lucan United. He progressed through the youth levels and became a regular for the U18s during the 2015-16 season, featuring as a centre-back.

On 8 January 2016, Masterson was called up to the senior squad for the first time in his career, making the substitutes bench for a 2-2 FA Cup draw away to Exeter City.

In the summer of 2016, Masterson was named captain of the U18 side, after Trent Alexander-Arnold moved to the Reserves. The Irishman continued to impress, and began making appearances for the U23s throughout the 2016-17 season.

For the 2017-18 campaign, Masterson moved to the U23s full time, and on occasion also made appearances as a midfielder, with manager Neil Critchley noting that Masterson was ‘a presence, and brought a certain assurance’ when playing in the centre.

On 4 April 2018, Masterson appeared on the bench as Liverpool defeated Manchester City 3-0 in the Champions League, due to injuries to Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan.

Despite this, Masterson never really made the step-up required to impact the first-team, and at the end of the 2018-19 season, was released.
