The Appleby Arrows are a Quidditch team from the town of Appleby-in-Westmorland in Cumbria, England. The Arrows play in the British and Irish Quidditch League. Founded in 1612, the Arrows play in robes of pale blue, emblazoned with a silver arrow. There is traditionally fierce rivalry between the Arrows and the Wimbourne Wasps.
Gregory Cotton was a seeker for the Appleby Arrows.
The Arrows are the only known English Quidditch team not located in the West Country.
The club was founded.
The club's supporters old practise of shooting arrows into the air from their wands every time their Chasers scored was banned by the Department of Magical Games and Sports in 1894, when one of these weapons pierced the referee, Nugent Potts, through the nose.
Arrows fans agree that their team's most glorious hour was their 1932 defeat of the team who were then the European champions, the Vratsa Vultures, in a match that lasted sixteen days in conditions of dense fog and rain.
Behind the scenes
- The Arrows were thought to have been based in Appleby, North Lincolnshire, however, in the latest edition of Quidditch Through the Ages Illustrated Edition, there is a map with the location of all the Quidditch teams in Britain and Ireland, and the Appleby Arrows are shown to be located in the Appleby in Cumbria. This is also further evidenced by Bloomsbury presenting the town with a banner of Appleby Arrows and named an official Honorary Quidditch Town.
