Chudley Cannon win stuns fans

"This is the happiest day of my life"
-- Ragmar Dorkins, in tears, to the Daily Prophet (DP3)

Chudley Cannon win stuns fans

Chudley Cannon win stuns fans is an article in the Sports section of the Daily Prophet reporting a surprise win by the Chudley Cannons quidditch team (DP3).

Surprise and happiness were the reactions of Chudley Cannons fan Barnaby Snell and team manager Ragmar Dorkins when the Cannon’s seventeen game losing streak was finally broken by a win against the Wigtown Wanderers (DP3).

Commentary

Notes

Even Albus Dumbledore said "as surely as the Chudley Cannons will finish bottom of this year’s league" (DH33), so no one was expecting this to happen!

Although the date printed on the third Daily Prophet Newsletter (DP3) is 1 June 1999, the timeframe for this event is 1992-1993.
