"….even die-hard fans must have been dubious about the Bats' chances"
-- match report in the Daily Prophet (DP2)
The Prophet reports on the Quidditch match between the Ballycastle Bats and the Tutshill Tornados, where a suspicious bout of “sleeping sickness” affected the performance of the Tornados’ keeper, Mervyn Fenwick (DP2).
Although the date printed on the second Daily Prophet Newsletter (DP2) is 8 February 1999, the timeframe for this event is 1992-1993.
