Spokane Velocity FC News Release

Spokane Velocity FC goalkeeper Peter Swinkels has announced his retirement from USL League One.

Swinkles joined Velocity FC in the preseason and in three matches played earned two clean sheets and conceded only a single goal.

The 26-year-old San Francisco native had a standout career at San Francisco State University, and spent his summers playing with San Francisco City FC of USL League Two. After a final collegiate season as a graduate transfer at the University of New Hampshire, he signed with One Knoxville SC in 2022, when it was a semi-pro team in USL League Two. In the 2023 season, he made five appearances for One Knox.

“We want to thank Peter for his contributions to the team this year and we all wish him the best of luck for the future,” said head coach Leigh Veidman.

Velocity FC are expected to announce a new goalkeeper signing this week.
