Jack Logan retires

Former Hull FC centre Jack Logan has announced he will be ending his playing career at the age of 26.

Logan had agreed to play for Championship club York in the 2022 season, and played three matches for them. However, he has taken the decision to walk away from the game for family reasons.

He has also represented Batley, Hull KR, Doncaster, Toronto and Leigh over the course of his career. He made his debut for Hull FC in 2014, and had several loan spells before signing permanently for Doncaster ahead of the 2020 season.

Logan signed for Batley before returning to Hull on loan in 2021, and then signed for York in 2022.

In a statement on the club website, York said: “26-year-old Logan made three competitive appearances for the Knights since joining ahead of this season in our opening three rounds of the Betfred Championship season.

“The centre has departed due to personal reasons and everyone at the Knights would like to thank Jack for his efforts throughout his short time with the Club and will continue to offer him support where required.”

Logan not ruling out return completely.

In an Instagram post, Logan said that while he would not rule out making a return to competitive rugby league, he admitted he did not see it happening.

He added: “Had to make a tough call this week, I’ve realised it’s time to call it a day with my rugby! It wasn’t an easy decision, trust me, but I think it’s time to put my family first, instead of my rugby!

“I’ve played for some great clubs and met some great blokes along the way! I’m proud of what I managed to do in my career, and I’ll cherish those memories for life.

“I’ll never say never, but at this moment, and as far as I can see into the future, I can’t see me playing competitive rugby league again!

“Its time to concentrate on my new career, and start to build a solid base for my son to be able to have the best upbringing I can give him! Thanks to everyone who’s supported me along the way! I really am thankful for everyone of you!”
