-- Ron Weasley on saving Bradley's goal (OP30)
Bradley was a Hogwarts student in Ravenclaw House in the 1990s and was a Chaser on the Ravenclaw Quidditch team.
Bradley played in the match against Gryffindor for the Quidditch Cup towards the end of the 1995-96 school year. Ron Weasley saved Bradley’s attempts on goal, and Gryffindor won the match (OP30, OP31).
Bradley is an early medieval Anglo-Scottish surname, meaning "a broad clearing" (Internet Surname Database).
