"Alasdair made a simple mistake, which admittedly cost us the match and made us slip to third place in the League. I am quite sure, however, that nothing like this will happen again. He will certainly be unable to kick the Snitch if I turn him into a jellyfish, which is the sort of simple mistake I might allow myself one of these days."
— Cormack McLeod, about Montrose Magpies Chaser Alasdair Maddock[src]

Cormack McLeod was a wizard and the manager of the Montrose Magpies Quidditch team.[2][3]


In the early 1990s, he voiced his displeasure to the Daily Prophet about how one of his Chasers, Alasdair Maddock, had caused the team to lose their Quidditch match against the Kenmare Kestrels for trying to incorporate football tactics in the game. He told the paper that he might one day turn Maddock into a jellyfish.[2] He later fired Maddock prior to a match against the Caerphilly Catapults, because he had been caught playing a Muggle sport involving the use of "peculiar metal sticks" to knock "non-flying balls into holes in the ground."[3]

Behind the scenes[]


Notes and references[]

  1. He refers to golf clubs as "peculiar metal sticks" implying he was not a Muggle-born.
