James 'Jimmy' Logan (born June 24, 1870 in Troon, Scotland; died May 25, 1896 in Loughborough, England) was a former professional footballer. He is most famous for scoring a hat-trick in the 1894 FA Cup Final for Notts County in a 4-1 victory over Bolton Wanderers.

Logan started his career at Ayr F.C.. On March 21, 1891, he scored on his full Scotland debut, finishing on the winning team in a 4-3 victory over Wales. He came to the attention of Sunderland that day and in 1891 signed for them, making two appearances as Sunderland won the 1891/1892 season.

In October 1892 he returned to Ayr F.C. briefly before signing for Aston Villa for a transfer fee of £30. He played ten times for them in the 1892/1893 season, scoring on seven occasions, and followed that up with one goal in four games before Notts County signed him. Notts County at this point were a Second Division Club, but this only helped Logan as he went on to score 21 goals in 21 games, guiding the club to their first FA Cup Final. Notts County eliminated three clubs from the First Division to reach the final and beat Bolton Wanderers 4-1, Jimmy Logan scoring a hat-trick to seal the victory.
