Bio Extra

Jim had been a near ever-present for 3 seasons at Stirling Albion before joining Thistle as back-up in the summer of 1971. On 1st September, with the League Cup section already won, Davie McParland made 8 changes and brought in some youngsters and fringe players for match day 6, a midweek encounter with Raith Rovers, won by 5 goals to nil. Mullin hit the post twice and manager McParland was generally pleased with the performance of them all. It turned out to be Jim Logan's only game for the first team and, such is the quirky hand of fate, it was enough to earn him a place in club's Hall of Fame, as the entire League Cup winning squad were inducted. Brilliantly, the reserves also won the Second XI cup later in that same season - a unique double for Jim!
