1975

Legendary Quidditch Captain and Chaser for the Montrose Magpies, Fabius Watkins was involved in a freak collision with a helicopter. He died instantly.

1986

To the surprise of the Quidditch-playing world, the Patonga Proudsticks, an African Quidditch team, held the Montrose Magpies to a draw.

1998

Chaser Alasdair Maddock was becoming inordinately fond of Muggle sport, but claimed he "only tried football for a laugh".

1999

Maddock is blamed for the Magpies' loss to the Kenmare Kestrels, due to his attempts at using techniques from Muggle football. Magpies Seeker Lennox Campbell missed the Snitch when it was kicked at him by one of his Chasers (presumably Maddock).

Maddock was sacked by Magpies manager Cormack McLeod before their game against Caerphilly Catapults, having been caught trying to play golf. He was replaced by former Catapults player Angus Campbell.
