David Griffiths

David Griffiths played as an outside-right in a practice game at Exeter City on the 26/08/1914.

He was described as being from Scotland and had played for Plymouth Argyle two seasons before.

This is an extract from the Plymouth Argyle archive

"He was born in Coatbridge in 1888 but began his career with Kidderminster Harriers, before returning to his native Scotland with Third Lanark. During the 1907-08 season he scored 23 goals for Thirds, which led to a transfer to Bolton Wanderers. He struggled to break into the Wanderers first team though, and after just a single season with the club moved on to Home Park

An outside-right, the Argyle handbook memorably described Griffiths as "splendidly proportioned" as well as praising him for having "a clever game". In two years at Home Park he only occasionally held down a regular place in the starting line-up and at the end of the 1910-11 campaign moved on to Bury, his last recorded club"
