Career[edit]

Crystal Palace[edit]

De Silva is a product of the Crystal Palace academy and possesses pace and quick feet. In April 2010, De Silva signed his first professional contract.[3] He made his début in the FA Cup against Derby County on 7 January 2012 and made his league début away to Blackpool on 21 January 2012.[4] In May 2012, he signed a three-year contract with Palace.[5]

During the 2012–13 season, Kyle De Silva suffered a series of injuries which kept him out of action for half a year.[6] On 22 March 2013 he signed for Barnet on loan until the end of the season.[7] He made his debut as a 66th-minute substitute for Luke Gambin in a 0-0 home draw with Cheltenham Town.[8]

On 8 May 2015, it was announced that de Silva would not be offered a new contract by Crystal Palace and would be leaving the club.[9] It was believed that injuries and a loss of form were the main factors in de Silva's release by the club.[10]

Notts County[edit]

After being released by Crystal Palace, de Silva joined League Two side Notts County on a two-year contract.[11]

He made 6 appearances for the Magpies before having his contact terminated by mutual consent.[12]
