Griffiths, born in Bury St Edmunds, began his career with Ipswich Town having been spotted playing for local team Cornard Dynamos. He progressed through the Ipswich academy system and signed a 12-month professional deal in April 2010. A midfielder, he made his debut as a substitute in a League Cup tie in October 2010 but a back injury then kept him out for the next couple of months. During his time at Portman Road he was team-mates with another future Argyle signing, Conor Hourihane. He was offered a six-month contract extension by manager Paul Jewell at the end of the 2010-11 campaign and joined Argyle on a one-month loan in August 2011, reuniting with Hourihane.
Griffiths' first few days at Home Park were quite a baptism of fire; he made his debut (along with Simon King) in the away match at Burton Albion, the day following a strike threat when the players initially refused to board the team coach after more missed wage payments, in 2011's painful period of administration. In all he made nine appearances for the club before his loan spell was terminated and he returned to Ipswich Town following a red card for Argyle whilst playing up front at Cheltenham in November 2011. He was released by the Suffolk club when his contract expired in December 2011, and after trials with Colchester United and Gillingham, he rejected a contract offer from Conference National new-boys Braintree Town before moving to Isthmian League Division One North side AFC Sudbury.
Unable to break regularly into Sudbury’s first team, he was released in May 2012 and then signed a two-year contract with financially-troubled Southern League Premier Division side Kettering Town in October 2012. He played over 30 times for the Poppies and scored three goals before being released as the club's financial woes worsened (which must have given Griffiths quite a déjà vu feeling). In July 2014 he returned to his East Anglian roots and signed for Long Melford in Division One of the Eastern Counties League.
