EXCLUSIVE: Richard Logan set to sign for Bury Town

Have your say

Within hours of mutually agreeing to depart npower League Two outfit Wycombe Wanderers, Bury St Edmunds-born striker Richard Logan is set to sign for his hometown club, the Free Press can reveal.

The Blues moved swiftly for the 30-year-old after he agreed to leave Adams Park, and is prepared to sign a short-term deal.

Logan has played for a host of Football League clubs, including Ipswich Town, Peterborough United and Shrewsbury Town, but it is at Exeter City where he made his name, scoring 48 goals in 215 appearances and helping them to back-to-back promotions from the Conference to League One.

However, a summer move to Wycombe did not work out for Logan, who failed to score in 10 appearances for the Chairboys.

He met Bury chairman Russell Ward last night (Friday) and agreed a deal, with his debut set to be the Blues’ Isthmian League Cup tie at Witham Town on Tuesday (7.45pm).

The striker will join up with the Ram Meadow-based outfit initially until January 1.

Under the terms of his departure from Wycombe, he is not allowed to link up with another professional club until then.

Meanwhile, Bury Town visit Margate in the Ryman League Premier Division today (3pm).
