Sierra Leone striker Augustine Williams has signed for USL Championship side Charleston Battery on a two-year deal ahead of the 2022 roster, pending league and federation approval.

The club announced Wednesday the signing of their new acquisition on their official website. The Sierra Leone international, 24, says he is ready and excited to help his new club.

“I’m excited to be here in Charleston, and I can’t wait to get to work the Battery are a great club with a great history behind it,” said Williams. “I’m happy to be a part of the team now and to contribute to making history with this amazing club.” 

Williams played last season with San Diego Loyal, where he scored six goals, three assists in ten chances created in 13 games with San Diego while on loan from LA Galaxy after seven matches in Major League Soccer. 

On the international stage, Williams, who debuted with the Leone Stars on June 15, 2021, during the AFCON qualification against Benin, was part of the AFCON in Cameroon.

He was pleased with his name at the national level at the just concluded AFCON in Cameroon.

“Being at the Africa Cup of Nations was an amazing feeling and something I’ll cherish for the rest of my life,” Williams told the club’s website. “It has shaped me into a different player, mentally and physically. Being there and learning everything I did, I believe it all has helped a lot in preparing me for a successful USL Championship season.”
