York have confirmed the signing of former Super League centre Jack Logan for the 2022 Championship campaign.

Logan, 26, makes the move from Leigh on a one-year deal.

The centre made his first-team debut in 2014 for Hull against Wigan. He also featured for Doncaster, Hull Kingston Rovers and Toronto on loan.

He joined Batley ahead of the 2021 season before returning on loan to his boyhood club, scoring a try on his second debut for the club. Logan then signed for Leigh in August, spending the remainder of the season with the Centurions.

Jack Logan on York move

“The main part was taking that step back away from Super League,” he said. “I’ve sort of scratched that itch of playing in that league for now and I think the best thing for my family and I was signing part-time.

“If you look in the Championship at the clubs that can really offer you a good part-time deal, York has to be up there with the best if not the best itself for opportunity, ambition, great facilities and a highly regarded coaching staff.

“There’s a great playing group as well. A mix of youth and experience. It’s a really good platform for somebody to be really excited about.”

Head coach James Ford on new recruit

On the signing of Logan, head coach James Ford said: “Jack Logan brings more competition to our centre positions. He’s played plenty of Super League for Hull FC. We’re aiming at getting him back to those levels and beyond.

“We’re looking forward to working with Jack and helping him back to the top of his game.”
