Gregory Cotton was the Seeker for the Appleby Arrows.[1] During a match with the Pride of Portree, he collided with the opposing team's Seeker, Dougal McBride, while both were locked in a race to catch the Golden Snitch.[1][2][3] Cotton came out with the Snitch in his hand, but an altercation with McBride ensued, during which jinxes were illegally exchanged, and McBride transfigured Cotton's head into a cabbage.[1][3] McBride defended his actions to the referee, Josiah Plunkett, by claiming that Cotton had hit him with a Jelly-Fingers Curse during the race for the Snitch, and thus deserved to be "cabbaged."[2][4]
