Grif­fith won road ten­nis tour­na­ments in New Or­leans, Eden Lodge and Bush Hall.

Haynes was named Foot­baller Of The Year in 1958.

Haynes made his de­but as a 21-year-old on the Bar­ba­dos team in 1953, the same sea­son he scored more over 20 goals for Ever­ton.

Ever­ton won the league ti­tle in 1966, his fi­nal sea­son as a club and na­tional player.

Grif­fith, who cel­e­brates his 74th birth­day on Mon­day, is the only man to take two dif­fer­ent coun­tries to the Caribbean Foot­ball Union (CFU) fi­nals, achiev­ing the feat with Bar­ba­dos in 1994 and An­tigua in 1995. That 1994 side in­cluded Trevor Thorne, Wayne Guy Sobers, Sher­win Mullin, Terry Sealy, Dave Al­leyne, Hendy Wil­liams, Roger Honda Proverbs, Maurice Gaskin and Mal­colm Payne.

He has coached in An­tigua, An­guilla, Cay­man Is­lands, Trinidad with Joe Pub­lic, US Vir­gin Is­lands and British Vir­gin Is­lands.

In his last stint as tech­ni­cal ad­vi­sor in 2007, Grif­fith, with Eyre Sealy as coach, guided Bar­ba­dos to a world rank­ing of 96.
