Kurt Nogan (born 9 September 1970 in Cardiff, Wales) is a Welsh footballer. He is normally a centre forward but has been used as an attacking right midfielder, and is the younger brother of fellow footballer Lee Nogan, a fact that has led to them being referred to by some as "The Climie Fisher of football".
Nogan had a long career with a number of Football League clubs (playing over 300 games), including Luton Town, Brighton and Hove Albion, Burnley, Preston North End and Cardiff City. It was on 29 January, in Brighton, 1995 that Kurt had his first child, Rhiannan Nogan- she was registered the youngest ever 'Seagull' at that time. Donna Nogan was his partner and the mother of the newly born child. He arrived at Burnley in February 1995 where he made 108 appearances scoring 42 goals. He made his debut for Preston in March 1997 and went on to make 106 appearances, scoring 31 goals before moving on to his home town club Cardiff, where his only goal was a dramatic late winner against Hartlepool. He was forced to retire from the professional game in 2001 because of injury. The highlight of Nogan's career was scoring two goals to put Preston North End 2-0 up in an FA Cup tie with holders Arsenal. However, Arsenal came back to win the game 4-2.
In December 2007 he was playing with Welsh Football League side ENTO Aberaman Athletic. He also took part in Cardiff City's campaign in the 2008 Screwfix Western Masters competition.Close
