Like every player who ends up playing first-team football at the top level, Mason Mount has had a long journey.
He was joined on that road by the people around him, including his dad, Tony, ahead of breaking into the first-team at Chelsea this campaign.
It’s therefore no surprise that Tony Mount takes great pride in his son playing regularly for Chelsea and he proved that in a throwback snap posted on Twitter on Tuesday.

Mount Sr uploaded two photos of Mount — with one of them being a snap as a ball boy at the side of the pitch during a Champions League match at Chelsea.
The other picture is of Mount these days, now that he has reached the first-team at Chelsea and is likely to play for them against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
Tony added a caption with the photo, writing: ‘From Champions League ball boy to Champions League player’.
He followed that with a quote that read: ‘Stay focused, stay driven’.
The 21-year-old is likely to feature against the German giants after an impressive performance in the Spurs game at the weekend.
