Logan was born in Leeds to former Welsh international footballer and manager Terry Yorath and his wife Christine when Yorath was playing for Leeds United. Due to her father’s career, Logan had to move around much in her youth, as her father played for a number of British teams as well as the Canadian team Vancouver Whitecaps.

She attended Bishop Ullathorne RC School in Coventry, Cardinal Heenan High School and Notre Dame Sixth Form College in Leeds and read Law at the College of St Hild and St Bede, Durham, Logan played netball at school and at university and also competed at high jump, but the peak of her sporting career was when she placed eighth in rhythmic gymnastics representing Wales at the 1990 Commonwealth Games in Auckland.

She had to retire from gymnastics aged 17 due to sciatica, Logan became interested in football during her regular attendances at her father’s matches, to which her mother went out of a “sense of duty”. On 11 May 1985, she was in the crowd at Valley Parade when the Bradford City stadium fire happened. She, along with her brother and sister, had left the stand only moments before the fire took hold and watched the disaster taking place, Logan was chosen as the Leeds Rose for the 1991 Rose of Tralee competition, Logan runs and plays golf and is a supporter of Newcastle United stretching back to her time at Durham University, where her then boyfriend was a childhood fan.

She remembers her first match as Newcastle’s 1–0 Premier League victory over Everton on 25 August 1993 and made visits by air or rail to St. James’ Park throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, including Newcastle’s 5–0 win over Manchester United on 20 October 1996.
