Order of the Phoenix

In the last meeting of Dumbledore's Army before Christmas, Angelina Johnson tells Harry that they have finally managed to get replacement Beaters. Alicia Spinnet says the new beaters are Andrew Kirke and Jack Sloper, and that they are nowhere as good as Fred and George, but were the best of a very bad lot.

On February 14th, Ron says that he can't go to Hogsmeade because Angelina wants a full day's practice. Ron is sceptical that it will help, because Sloper and Kirke are even worse than he is.

The following weekend, in the match against Ravenclaw, it is mentioned that one of the low points of the game is Kirke shrieking and falling backwards off his broom as Zacharias Smith zooms towards him with the Quaffle.

Half-Blood Prince

When try-outs happen, Kirke is passed over; the new Beaters are Jimmy Peakes and Ritchie Coote.
