Oliver Wood says that “Gryffindor hasn’t won for seven years now.” He is taking into account the fact that no Cup was awarded last year when he says this (so that it agrees with other such comments in the book, quoted below). The last time Gryffindor won the Quidditch Cup, then was the 1983-1984 season.

This year’s team consists of:

  • Oliver Wood, seventh year, Keeper, Captain
  • Angelina Johnson, fifth year, Chaser
  • Alicia Spinnet, fifth year, Chaser
  • Fred Weasley, fifth year, Beater
  • George Weasley, fifth year, Beater
  • Harry Potter, third year, Seeker
  • Katie Bell, fourth year, Chaser

During Harry’s first year, the following comment is made:
“If they won their next match, against Hufflepuff, they would overtake Slytherin in the house championship for the first time in seven years…As the match drew nearer, however, Harry became more and more nervous, whatever he told Ron and Hermione. The rest of the team wasn’t too calm, either. The idea of overtaking Slytherin in the house championship was wonderful, no one had done it for seven years, but would they be allowed to, with such a biased referee?”
