"The Chudley Cannons," said Ron, pointing at the orange bedspread, which was emblazoned with two giant black C's and a speeding cannonball. "Ninth in the league." (CS3)

Although they have a well-earned reputation for losing, they did win two games and draw one, after a sixteen game losing streak (their worst season in fifty years). This was documented in a series of articles in the Daily Prophet (DP1, DP2, DP3, DP4). However, Albus Dumbledore, a Puddlemere United fan, doesn't think much of the chance of the Cannons' sustaining any kind of winning record (DH33, QA).
- Dragomir Gorgovitch, Chaser - he transferred to the Chudley Cannons for a record fee, but is also the record holder for most Quaffle drops in a season (DH7).
- Galvin Gudgeon, Seeker (c. 1990s) (DP1)
- Joey Jenkins, Beater - he hits a Bludger toward a Ballycastle Bats Chaser in an illustration in the book Flying With the Cannons (GF22).
Chudleigh, the Muggle town in Central Devon that is probably "Chudley", does not have any sports teams in its Wikipedia listing (Wikipedia).
