Arjan Swinkels (born 15 October 1984 in Moergestel) is a Dutch footballer who plays as a centre back for Belgian club Lierse.

Club career[edit]

Willem II[edit]

Swinkels made his league debut against Roda JC, 18 September 2005. The following season, Swinkels was mostly on the bench, but in the Spring, he began playing regularely. In the last round, he saved a ball on the goalline, which meant that Willem II was safe of relegation. In the new season, Swinkels began playing as centre-back instead of injured Delano Hill. Since then, Swinkels has been a regular starter.


After signing for Lierse in the summer of 2012, Swinkels suffered a long time injury as he tore his Meniscus[1][2]
