Magpie Chaser “Only Tried Football for a Laugh”

"The ball doesn't fly or anything. I just wanted to see what it felt like."
-- Alasdair Maddock to The Daily Prophet (DP1)

Magpie Chaser “Only Tried Football for a Laugh”

Magpie Chaser “Only Tried Football for a Laugh” is the first in a series of Daily Prophet articles about Alasdair Maddock’s obsession with Muggle sports (DP1).

The Prophet reported that Maddock, a Chaser for the Montrose Magpies quidditch team, had been spotted practising headers with a Muggle football in Dorset. He had previously been suspended from the team for employing techniques from the Muggle game of basketball during a game against the Caerphilly Catapults (DP1).
