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"

Cannons Didn’t Lose Shock

Cannons Didn’t Lose Shock is an article appearing in the Sports section of the Daily Prophet about a match involving the Chudley Cannons quidditch team (DP2).

The paper 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 this Catapults match. However, a true fan would hang on no matter how badly the team is doing (DP2).

Although the date printed on the second Daily Prophet Newsletter (DP2) is 8 February 1999, the timeframe for this event is 1992-1993.
