Bully For Us

ARGYLE have received a boost on the eve of their trip to Carlisle United...

...with the news that Latvian centre-back Nauris Bulvitis’s international clearance has come through.

The defender had been waiting for the paperwork to be completed after leaving Latvian Virsliga side FK Spartaks, of Jurmala.

The 29-year-old is now clear to make his Argyle debut at Brunton Park after being unavailable for the opening-day Sky Bet League Two encounter with Luton Town at Home Park seven days earlier and the subsequent midweek EFL Cup visit to Reading.

Nauris became an Argyle player at the end of June 2016, following a second spell with FK Spartaks and was a regular during the Pilgrims’ pre-season campaign.

He has made 19 appearances for his country, scoring twice  and is in his second spell in British football, having previously been a part of the Inverness Caledonian Thistle side that won the Scottish First Division in 2009-10.
