National captain and professional footballer, Quinton Griffith, is no longer with United Soccer League’s (USL) Charleston Battery.
This was confirmed by at least one source close to the utility player, who said Griffith and the U.S.-based professional football club mutually parted ways in April of this year.
Ironically, the player had reportedly just renewed his contract with Charleston Battery for one year and although details regarding his split from the club are sketchy, his agent is said to be in talks with a number of other clubs in both the USL and MLS (Major League Soccer) that have shown an interest in the Antiguan player.
Griffith, who first played for the Urlings FC here, left the Antigua professional football club, Antigua Barracudas in 2013 to join Battery for his first season in the USL.
The player has been based in the U.S. since, returning only for national duties and, at intervals, playing in the domestic programme.
He recently came under the microscope here when he turned out for Premier Division newcomers, Five Islands FC, in the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association’s (ABFA) top league.
The Grenades FC, on January 7, wrote a letter of protest to the ABFA despite a 1-0 victory over Five Islands FC, asking for clarity on Griffith’s eligibility to play in the competition.
Grenades argued that the player was still under contract with Charleston Battery and could not represent another team, Five Islands, in the Premier Division. 
Grenades, according to reports, had also written to one regional body, CONCACAF, voicing their concerns over the slow manner in which the ABFA was handling the issue.
Griffith last represented Battery in April.
