"....please stop trying to curse Gudgeon. Turning him into a toad will not help his game"
-- Ragmar Dorkins, Chudley Cannons team manager (DP1)

Lead sports story appearing in the Daily Prophet documenting the problems of the Chudley Cannons Quidditch team (DP1).

The struggling Cannons suffered a heavy loss of 350-0 against the Appleby Arrows. The cause for the Cannons' defeat was attributed to the performance of their Seeker, Galvin Gudgeon, who missed several opportunities to catch the Snitch during the match. Gudgeon's history of inattention is mentioned and the article concludes with an interview with Ragmar Dorkins, the team manager, who pleads with Cannons fans to be patient during this losing streak (DP1).
