Swindin made 297 appearances for Arsenal in the pre and post war teams before a spell later on as Arsenal manager.

Swindin started his career with BRadford City in 1934 and joined Arsenal two years later. He won a league championship medal in 1938 before his playing career was interrupted and he began a new role as an army physical training officer in World War Two. After the war ended he returned to Arsenal and conceeded only 32 goals in the 1947/48 season helping Arsenal to be crowned champions. He added an FA Cup winners' medal in 1950, before again picking up a championship medal in 1953.
