A posting by the Royal Navy brought the Leeds-born defender to Plymouth and he soon attracted the attention of Argyle manager Bob Jack. With age catching up on legendary defender Moses Russell, Bland stepped in to fill the void, even though he was making his Football League debut a month short of his 30th birthday. A very hard tackler and tough competitor, he was a member of the team that won promotion to the Second Division in 1930. He left Home Park in 1934 to play eight times for Cardiff City.
