Glasgow Grim Reapers Dominate Second Ever Development Cup


After a successful first tournament in Oxford last year, the second iteration of Development Cup took place on the 14 and 15th of April in at 22  Acres  Playing Fields, York. 13 teams from across the UK competed and honed their skills with the Glasgow Grim Reapers who came out on top after a decisive victory over Bathilisks QC in the final. Throughout the tournament Glasgow performed exceptionally well, topping their Group in Day 1 and again winning all their games on Day 2 to become the first ever Scottish team to win a QuidditchUK tournament.

Glasgow Grim Reapers’ path to the title:

Group Stage:

Glasgow Grim Reapers 110* – 40 Northern Lights

Glasgow Grim Reapers 130* – 40 Stirling Ridgebacks

Glasgow Grim Reapers 100 – 30* Sheffield Sealions

Glasgow Grim Reapers 90* – 40 Oxford Quidlings

Championship Bracket:

Glasgow Grim Reapers 100* – 30 Stirling Ridgebacks

Glasgow Grim Reapers 150* – 20 St Andrews Snidgets

Glasgow Grim Reapers 160* – 0 Bathilisks QC

In the third place playoff another Scottish team the St Andrews Snidgets defeated Oxford Quidlings to take the bronze medal with a 100* – 40 victory, whilst Northern Lights were the winners of the Consolation Bracket defeating Preston Poltergeists 110* – 20 in the final.

QuidditchUK would like to thank everyone who made the tournament happen, especially the tournament committee, the coaches, the referees and the volunteers both playing and non-playing. Without you the tournament wouldn’t have been such a huge success.

Full results from both days and final standings can be found here.
