"Saturday: Ballycastle Bats vs. Caerphilly Catapults, venue to be decided (Muggles camping on Ellis Moor. Contact Dept. of Magical Games and Sports, Ministry of Magic for details)."
-- from the Sport section of the Daily Prophet (DP4)
Their most famous player ‘Dangerous Dai’ Llewellyn was eaten by a Chimaera in Mykonos, Greece. The player who takes the most exciting risks is now awarded the Dangerous Dai Commemorative Medal at the end of each season (QA7). Arthur Weasley‘s stay in St Mungo‘s is spent on the Dai Llewellyn Ward, which is located on the First Floor and specialises in treating dangerous bites and other creature-induced injuries (OP22).
The British record for fastest capture of a Snitch (three and a half seconds) was during a game against the Tutshill Tornados in 1921. Unfortunately this result was achieved against the Caerphilly Catapults (QA7).
They then lost to the Montrose Magpies after the Magpies had fired their Muggle-obsessed Chaser Alasdair Maddock (DP3) (the Catapults having won the previous season’s fixture when Maddock had tried to “dribble” a quaffle) (DP1).
Although the dates printed on the Daily Prophet Newsletters are:
the timeframe for these events is 1992-1993.
