Sil Swinkels

Player #969 for Aston Villa, Sil Swinkels has played as a defender for the club since the 2020-21 season.

Sil was born on 6 January 2004 in Sint Oedenrode, Holland and signed for Villa from Vitesse Arnheim in August 2020 aged 16.

Swinkels was appointed to Sean Verity’s Under 18 squad on arrival before Mark Delaney promoted Swinkels to the first team squad and gave him his first team debut in the 2020-21 season aged 18 as a 75’ substitute for fellow debutant Callum Rowe in the 1-4 FA Cup defeat to Liverpool on Friday, 8 January 2021.

Swinkels was part of the youngest ever squad to be named by Villa for a professional game - aged 18.30 years on average - after the first team squad was forced into isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic which had seen a raft of players and staff testing positive for the virus in the week preceding the game.

Swinkels was also one of 16 debutants in the game - the most in a single game in Villa’s history. Swinkels made his debut appearance under caretaker manager Mark Delaney after Villa boss Dean Smith was required to join the first team in isolation.
