Gregory Cotton was the Seeker for the Appleby Arrows. 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. 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. 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."
