Puddlemere United is a Quidditch team that plays in the British and Irish Quidditch League. They were founded in 1163, making them the oldest team in the league. Their robes are navy-blue robes emblazoned with two crossed golden bulrushes. Their location is possibly somewhere on the River Piddle in Dorset. The team has won the League at least 22 times and the European Cup twice.

Puddlemere United's team anthem, Beat Back Those Bludgers, Boys, and Chuck That Quaffle Here, was recorded by singing sorceress Celestina Warbeck to raise money for St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries shortly before the publication of the edition of Quidditch Through the Ages that could be purchased by Muggles for Comic Relief. Albus Dumbledore was apparently a fan of this team, as he wished them the best of luck for the current upcoming season.

Puddlemere's Jocelind Wadcock holds the record for most goals scored in the British and Irish Quidditch League in the 20th century.

HistoryEdit

1163Edit

The team was founded.

1994Edit

During the early summer of this year, after graduating Hogwarts, Oliver Wood started playing for Puddlemere's reserve team.

1998Edit

Puddlemere United changed their robe colour from mud-brown to blue.

1999Edit

Puddlemere's Chaser Wilda Griffiths, poached from the Holyhead Harpies for 1000 Galleons, helped her new team to a win against Wigtown Wanderers.

The Harpies played Puddlemere United at Ilkley Moor. Wands were confiscated at the gates, as crowd trouble was anticipated. Many fans handed over dummy wands, however. Puddlemere's Chaser Wilda Griffiths disappeared midway through the match. A riot broke out and fans of both sides used their wands. Gwenog Jones was held in custody after the game. A 23 year-old Puddlemere United fan called Timothy Blenkinsop was caught in the riot and acquired a rat's tail. Puddlemere were 2nd in the table after the game.
