Charleston Battery Soccer Club Releases Initial 2019 Roster

An undergraduate student at Charleston Southern University in South Carolina, Andrew Khoury will soon complete a bachelor's degree program in kinesiology. Alongside his academic pursuits, Andrew Khoury serves as the setup manager for the Charleston Battery, a South Carolina professional soccer club that plays in the USL Championship. 

Ahead of 2019 regular season play, which will kick off in early March, the Charleston Battery has announced initial roster plans for what will be the club's 27th season. Battery fans will be glad to hear that Mike Anhaeuser's roster features 12 returning players from the 2018 squad, which made it to the playoffs and finished the regular season fourth overall in the USL Eastern Conference. 

Among the returning players are 2018 All-League selections Ataulla Guerra and Tah Brian Anunga as well as goalkeeper Joe Kuzminsky. The projected 2019 roster also includes defenders Leland Archer and Taylor Mueller, midfielders Angelo Kelly and Kotaro Higashi, and forwards Ian Svantesson and Romario Piggot. 

Charleston Battery coaching staff will continue to add to the roster as ongoing negotiations and open trials are completed in early 2019. More information about the roster and 2019 schedule is available at
