The 2016 campaign is Griffith’s fourth season with the Battery. He returns to Charleston with a wealth of natural ability and professional and international experience.
In his first three seasons with the Battery, the Antigua native appeared in 64 USL games, the majority of which came at right back. However, his blistering pace and quick feet allow him to play as an outside back or in a more advanced position as a winger.
Griffith started 2015 at fullback in great form, earning Team of the Week honors in weeks Nos. 1 and 5, but injured his knee in April and underwent surgery. He returned to action in late June, primarily as a midfielder, flashing signs that he would soon return to the form that made him a top MLS prospect. After being deployed further forward while working up to full-fitness, Griffith finished 2015 as Anhaeuser’s first choice right back. Even when playing across the back line, Griffith has the ability to deliver crosses in dangerous areas. He chipped in with two assists during the 2015 season.
Before signing with the Battery in 2013, Griffith spent two years with former USL PRO side Antigua Barracuda FC where he scored three goals in 39 appearances. The versatile defender also brings a wealth of international experience to Charleston’s roster. He made his international debut in 2009 and has earned 34 caps, including appearances in the final stages of the 2010 Caribbean Championship and 2014 and 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.
