Steve Perryman revealed that he resigned as manager of Brentford in 1991 because his chairman refused to let him sign Elkins for a nominal fee. The reason given by the chairman was that the player had 'shifty eyes'.
Elkins spent six years playing top flight football for Wimbledon, being a regular in the club's midfield for most of that time.
In 1996, Elkins was signed by Steve McMahon at Swindon Town. He started only 19 games for the club and soon moved into non-league football, while also working as a coach at the Elms Soccer School in Middlesex.
