Matthew was always his own man. He was not a follower, fashion etc. He was not a sheep and always made up his own mind. This is why it is so unbelievable and out of character. He must of had a stupid moment or glitch, lapse etc. At the end of the day Matthew has not done anything illegal. He has not broken the law of the land, but I would argue the ethics, that's why he probably did not tell us. It is legal to buy and to take anabolic steroids. The illegal part is the selling or dealing of them. (In the UK) We are talking about a boy that eats healthily and is a fitness fanatic and never smoked (clean living). So what did he perceive a steroid as - a supplement ? When Matthew joined the Academy Gym on the London Road, Westcliff On Sea, we thought he was going into an environment of health and fitness. We didn't give drugs a second thought. He bought the steroids from Alex Moss-Austin, another 17 year old at the time who was using them. He was using his own body as an advert. This guy as far as we are concerned is the salesman and the result in Matthew's case was a tragic end of his life. Matthew had no underlying health problems, even in the post mortem only the effects of the steroids could be found.
