RICHARD Logan has left Wycombe Wanderers after manager Gareth Ainsworth said the striker didn't fit in with his style of play.

The 30-year-old was signed by previous boss Gary Waddock in the summer after five years with Exeter City, playing a significant role in their rise from non-league football to League One.

But he only managed to find the net once in a Blues shirt - against Bristol Rovers in a game that was abandoned in the second half after Adams Park was struck by lightning during a torrential downpour.

Logan dropped down the pecking order after Ainsworth was installed as manager, and the 39-year-old said he wasn't mobile enough to fit in with the way he wants his side to play and allowed him to leave on Friday.

Ainsworth said: "Gary [Waddock] had high hopes for him at the start of the season. He really hasn't performed in my opinion.

"He's a less mobile striker than most. He's a target man who wins his headers and had people play off him. He didn't really fit into my all action style.

"I felt for Logie a bit because he's an experienced pro and he's on the bench and wasn't featuring at all.

"He knows some of the young players were coming through and being given a chance, so he wasn't featuring as much as he wanted to.

"He'll look somewhere else and I'm sure he'll do well. We wish him all the best and thank him for what he's done. Teams will need a Richard Logan and I'm sure we'll see him pop up somewhere."

Logan has this week joined Conference South side Dorchester Town on non contract terms, having looked set to join hometown club Bury Town until a last minute change of heart.

He is unable to sign for another professional team until January 1.

After news of his departure was confirmed, Logan tweeted: "Wish all the Wycombe fans and the team a great season. Will miss everyone. Still keep in touch everyone and the fans."
