Swilly Rovers continue to benefit from the sale of goalkeeper Conrad Logan to Leicester City back in 2001.

The Ramelton native played his first match since 2010 for the Championship club on Tuesday in their 5-2 Capital Cup win against Carlisle United.

Logan’s appearance was his 25th for Leicester and triggered a payment clause to his former club.

Twelve years ago, a 15-year-old Logan signed for Leicester from Swilly Rovers and the payments received have helped the club build an Astroturf training facility at Swilly Park.

“We’re delighted to see Conrad back in the first team,” said Swilly Rovers PRO John Diver.

“Hopefully now he will continue to represent the Leicester first team.”

In May, Logan signed a contract extension to keep him at the King Power Stadium until 2015.

Leicester’s longest-serving player has spent time on loan at Stockport County, Luton Town, Bristol Rovers and Rotherham United.

Logan was substitute goalkeeper to Kasper Schmeichel in Saturday’s dramatic 3-2 win over Birmingham City.
