Forward Lester Peltier made his debut for Alashkert in a 2-1 victory over Armenia Premier League table toppers Banants on the weekend.

Peltier signed an 18-month contract with the Armenian club last month after spending the last few weeks in search of a new club following his period of play in Slovakia. Peltier had an assist in the game winner on 79 minutes.

“I am happy to be back playing again. It was a relief to sign with a club like Alashkert in the Armenian League. They are a good club and I feel comfortable here and just looking forward to giving it my best and getting in form again and hopefully I can get a look in the national team soon again,” Peltier said. The club is based in Yerevan.

Alashkert first qualified for the Europa League 2015–16 qualification round 1, after gaining fourth place in the Armenian Premier League 2014–2015.

In the first round Alashkert got past Scottish club St Johnstone before bowing out to Kazakh side Kairat in the second round .
