Web exclusive: Richard Logan commits to Bury Town for the rest of the season

Have your say

Bury Town vice-chairman Phil Smailes has told the Free Press that former Exeter City and Wycombe Wanderers striker Richard Logan has committed himself to the Blues for the rest of the season.

The Ram Meadow-based outfit, who ply their trade in the Ryman League Premier Division, have not gained a point since Logan made his one and only appearance for them at Canvey Island five matches ago.

The news completes a busy day in west Suffolk after Bury also confirmed the return of midfielder Craig Parker until the end of the current campaign and secured Chelmsford City defender Adam Tann on loan for another month.

Speaking about the commitment of Logan, who is set to be out of action for the next fortnight with a calf problem, Smailes said: “We are very pleased and hopefully he will enjoy himself enough that he decides to stay even longer.”

Although Bury signed Logan ahead of their 1-0 win at Canvey in January, he had been looking to extend his stay in the professional game after an impressive career took him via Ipswich Town, Cambridge United, Torquay United, Boston United, Peterborough United, Shrewsbury Town, Lincoln City, Weymouth, Exeter City and Wycombe Wanderers.

After leaving Wycombe in November, Logan joined Blue Square bet South outfit Dorchester Town, but made just six appearances.

Having finally made his bow at Canvey, the Blues were without his services while he went on trial with former club Torquay, but no deal with the League Two Gulls was forthcoming, so Logan has returned to his home town in a bid to halt Bury’s stuttering push for the play-offs.
