Dwight, Roy Elton John was the nephew of Roy Dwight. I saw Roy on his first game back after breaking his leg,many months later. He scored in a 1-1 draw against, I think Preston. He never was the same after his leg break.

Dwight, Roy Thought he was Elton's cousin, not Uncle.

Dwight, Roy Wasn't he Elton John's cousin?

DWIGHT, Roy Mr Dwight taught me cricket and badminton at Forest Hill School in south east London during the mid seventies. An excellent, patient and knowledgeable teacher and a very nice man.
