Cormack McLeod was the manager of the Quidditch team, the Montrose Magpies.[2][3] 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."[2][4] Maddock had previously upset Quidditch matches by trying out football and basketball tactics.[2]

Behind the scenes

McLeod is not only a real Scottish clan, but also the surname of the main character of the 1986 fantasy film Highlander: Connor McLeod, played by French actor Christopher Lambert.
