Cannons Didn’t Lose Shock

"Ragmar Dorkins said he was delighted that the team had not lost, which made a change from their last sixteen games"

-- match report in the Daily Prophet (DP2)

Article appearing in the Sports section of the Daily Prophet on a match involving the Chudley Cannons quidditch team (DP2)

The Daily Prophet reported that the Chudley Cannons drew a match against the Caerphilly Catapults. This broke their losing streak and gave hope to team manager Ragmar Dorkins (DP2)

In the Classified Advertisements section of the same issue of the  Prophet, a "disillusioned" fan is selling his Chudley Cannons memorabilia, including a souvenir League Cup 1873 medal. He probably placed the ad before the result from the Catapults match. A true fan would hang on no matter how the team is doing (DP2)



While the date printed on DP2 is 8 February 1999, the timeframe for these events is 1992-1993.
