"We're easily the most exciting team playing currently"
-- Gwenog Jones (DP1)
Holyhead Harpies Draw Record Crowd is an article published in the Sports section of the Daily Prophet about the Holyhead Harpies Quidditch team (DP1).
The Prophet reported that the Harpies, who always field an all-witch team, are drawing new fans to every match. The Prophet interviewed Harpy team captain Gwenog Jones about the reasons for their popularity and obtained some very reluctant collaboration from Finbar Quigley, captain of the Ballycastle Bats (DP1).
Absolutely no one dares to disagree with Gwenog Jones, the brilliant but dangerous Captain and Beater of the all-witch Holyhead Harpies. She can be a bit volatile.... This is the first of a series of articles in the Daily Prophet featuring Ms Jones.
Although the date printed on the first Daily Prophet Newsletter (DP1) is 31 July 1998, the timeframe for this event is 1992-1993.
