CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Charleston Battery announced on Monday the club had signed midfielder Andrew Booth to the 2022 roster, pending league and federation approval. The 24-year-old arrives in Charleston following a successful two-year stint in USL League One with Greenville Triumph SC, where he was part of the club’s title-winning side in 2020 and helped lead the squad to the 2021 League One Final.

“I think it’s a great opportunity to join the Battery, I want to make an impact, help the team as much as possible, and be a part of creating history,” said Booth. “I’ve always had the ambition to play at the highest level possible and the move to the Championship will challenge me in a good way while helping me improve as a player.”

2021 was a breakout season for the Florida native as he notched numerous personal career highs. Booth made 29 appearances across all competitions last season, second-most on the team, for a total of 2,019 minutes of action. He led Triumph SC in tackles won with 40 and co-led in assists with three. Booth additionally tallied two goals, 24 chances created, 15 interceptions and 115 duels won.

“Andrew’s got a great engine, he’s quick, he's fast and he pressures,” said Battery Head Coach Conor Casey. “I like that he seems to transition very well in both directions and think he's going to be a good two-way player for us.”

Before turning pro, Booth played collegiately at Florida International University where he appeared in 53 matches across four seasons with the Panthers, accumulating seven goals and nine assists. Booth was named Conference USA Midfielder of the Year following his senior year and earned All-Conference honors after his junior and senior campaigns. He was subsequently selected in the Fourth Round of the 2020 Major League Soccer SuperDraft by Minnesota United FC before signing with Greenville.

“I’m really looking forward to meeting everyone at the club, meeting the fans and getting to work,” said Booth. “It’s really exciting to join the club with the new head coach and a new project.”
