James Logan (1893–1968) was a Scottish professional footballer who played in the Football League for Plymouth Argyle in the 1920s. He played as a right half.[1]

Logan was born in Glasgow. He played for local club Glencraig Celtic and for Scottish League club Cowdenbeath,[1] before coming to England in 1919 to play for Plymouth Argyle, then a Southern League club. He made 279 appearances for the club in all competitions.[2] Logan played in Argyle's first game in the Football League, as the Southern League Division One clubs were absorbed to form the Football League Third Division for the 1920–21 season,[3] and went on to play 228 Football League games. He made his last appearance for Argyle in December 1928[2] and joined Yeovil & Petters United the following year.[2]
