Stuck In A Moment: The Ballad Of Paul Vaessen
- New Writer Award – Shortlisted
Paul Vaessen rose to overnight stardom in April 1980 by scoring one of the most dramatic goals in Arsenal’s history at the age of 18. Two years later he was on the football scrapheap and his life descended into a spiral of petty crime and drug abuse. He died penniless at the age of 39. Stuck in a Moment tells his tragic story.
