Gordon Taylor Logan (born 3 October 1949) is a Scottish former footballer who played at right-back for Port Vale and Kettering Town. He helped Port Vale to win promotion out of the Fourth Division in 1969–70.

Playing career[edit]

Logan graduated through the Port Vale juniors to sign professional forms with the club in March 1967.[1] He played seven Fourth Division games towards the end of the 1966–67 season.[1] He played 17 matches in the 1967–68 campaign, though manager Stanley Matthews came into trouble when it was revealed that Logan had been paid illegal bonuses.[1] He featured just four times in the 1968–69 season, as he fell out of favour under new boss Gordon Lee.[1] Logan played nine league and five FA Cup games in the 1969–70 promotion campaign, and scored his first senior goal on 13 September, in a 3–2 win over Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park.[1] He was given a free transfer to Southern League side Kettering Town in May 1970.[1]
