- "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 the manager of the Quidditch team, the Montrose Magpies. He fired one of the team's Chasers, Alasdair 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." Maddock had previously upset Quidditch matches by trying out football and basketball tactics.
