We are pleased to announce the signing of the young and exciting striker Ben Griffith.
Ben joins the Robins from newly-promoted National League South side Weston-super-Mare AFC where he progressed through the youth set-up after joining the Seagulls at the age of 12. He went on to make a number of first team appearances between several loan spells.
Striker Griffith has gained a wealth of senior footballing experience, developing at each of the clubs he has represented. His spells with the likes of Cheddar and Clevedon of the Western League in 2020 were followed by three separate loans in the Southern League with Willand Rovers in recent years. The pacy forward's run of form in the 21/22 season saw him score 17 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions. Last season, Ben enjoyed another brief spell in Devon while making waves for his parent club, his 3 goals in 10 league appearances coming as Weston secured promotion to the National League South.
Ben Griffith says “I'm buzzing to have signed for Frome, it’s a big club with big ambitions. I’ve played against them enough to know the way they play and that it suits my game. Hopefully I can come in and hit the ground running. I just can’t wait to get started.”
Manager Danny Greaves was delighted to secure Ben’s signature ahead of other interested parties. “Ben is a young, talented, and hungry forward whose pace and direct approach will add a different dimension to our game, something which we lacked at times last season. Having crossed paths with Ben a number of times while he was on loan at Willand and watched him, I have always been impressed by his dynamism. Scott Bartlett could not speak highly enough of the lad, and I have to say during all our conversations he has come across very well and showed his eagerness to come to Frome.”
