Logie served in the Royal Navy during the Second World War but returned to first-class football with Arsenal after being demobbed.

The attacking midfielder was almost ever-present for the next eight seasons and picked up two Division One winners' medals in 1948 and 1953.

He also lifted the 1950 FA Cup (setting up both goals in the 2-0 win over Liverpool) and played in the 1952 final when the Gunners were beaten 1-0 by Newcastle after playing 55 minutes with just 10 men.

Logie, a bricklayer by trade, captained Arsenal and won one cap for Scotland during his long spell in north London.

After a distinguished career with 76 goals to his name, the forward transferred to Gravesend and Northfleet for £2,000 in February 1955.
