Brief History

The club was formed in 1917 as a works side for the engineering company BTH (British Thompson Houston) in Rugby. In 1959, BTH merged with Metropolitan Vickers to become AEI (Associated Electrical Industries) and although the AEI company was taken over by GEC in 1967, the club retained its name.

In 1989, GEC in Rugby split into GEC Alstom and Cegelec Projects, but in 1998 the two companies were reunited under the Alstom banner. Whatever the name, the club still draws many of its players from these companies.

After a brief and disastrous flirtation with league rugby in the early 80's, for many seasons AEI devoted themselves solely to 'friendly' matches. Although AEI did spend two seasons (1999-2001) playing (and getting soundly beaten) in the Leicestershire Merit Table,

from the season 2001-2 they are back playing friendly matches in the true spirit of the game.

For many years the club ran three sides, but since about 1985 they have only run only one side.
