League Two side Wycombe Wanderers have announced the signing of forward Richard Logan on a free transfer, after the 30-year-old was released by Exeter in May.
Logan comes with plenty of Football League experience, having also played for Ipswich, Peterborough and Boston in a 12-year career. Despite having helped Exeter to promotion from the Conference in 2007-08 with 18 league goals, and scoring the goal that clinched promotion to League One on the last day of the following season, Logan has been deemed surplus to requirements.
Never prolific for any of his clubs, Logan had enjoyed one of his career’s best strike rates at Exeter, netting a goal every four games in a 5 year stay at St James Park. However, following the Grecians’ relegation from League One in 2011-12, Exeter chief Paul Tisdale elected not to renew the 6ft striker’s contract.
Themselves relegated to League Two last season, Wycombe are looking to rebuild this summer, and manager Gary Waddock has certainly been busy – Logan becomes the club’s sixth signing in just 24 hours. He will link up with fellow new recruits Matthew Spring and Gary Doherty, both of whom boast Premier League experience.
Logan had reacted angrily to his release from Exeter – which he called a “joke” – and fumed “I’m devastated that couldn’t even get the respect of a [phone] call [from boss Tisdale]”. However, he could be better placed to win promotion with Wycombe than if he had stayed at St James Park, with Tisdale’s self-enforced mass exodus meaning major rebuilding will be required if the side is to reach League One at the first attempt.
