17 March 2012, AEI 19, Tailenders 32

An ever increasing list of injuries coupled with the final Six Nations weekend meant that an understrength AEI lost to the more experienced home team in a hastily arranged fixture. The backline showed only two regular players with flanker Lee Clark pressed into the centres and recent recruit Darvey Oliver […]


10 March 2012, AEI 12, Copsewood II 27

  A disjointed and strangely lacklustre performance lead to a home defeat which AEI can have no complaints about. Fielding a full strength side and several returning players on the bench adversely affected the AEI who seemed to play the game as if the sheer number of players available meant […]


3 March 2012, AEI 40, Spartans 22

  A much more cohesive performance than last week from AEI resulted in a win albeit in unfamiliar surroundings at Old Saltleians’ ground due to match congestion at the home of Spartans. The match was a rerun of the fixture earlier in the season with AEI able to break the […]


25 February 2012, AEI 12, Standard 20

  AEI suffered a setback in their fight for top spot with another away loss with only a scratch 15 which was put together at the very last moment due to several last minute withdrawals and lack of effective communication. The game had an intended early start but with 45 […]


18 February 2012, AEI 43, Old Leamingtonians III 10

  Having had a last gasp victory 45-44 earlier in the season, Saturday’s scoreline at least painted the picture of an altogether more comfortable win but the match itself was a closely fought affair. With an experienced and muscular pack at the visitors’ disposal, AEI’s pack were unable to dominate […]


28 January 2012, AEI 66, Stoke Old Boys II 3

  AEI returned to winning ways with an emphatic home victory against a bare 15 man opposition. From the outset AEI dominated proceedings and finished the match with the lion’s share of both territory and possession. The home side had the upper hand in almost all aspects of the game […]


21 January 2012, AEI 10, Atherstone II 23

  A much more evenly matched contest than last week’s continued AEI’s poor run of results since the end of November 2011. Suffering from a lack of fit and available backs, AEI again had to play several players out of position and lacked the cutting edge which was to the […]


14 January 2012, AEI 3, Broadstreet IV 41

  Broadstreet, desperate to gain some measure of revenge, made full use of their squad to line up with almost an entirely changed starting 15 in their victory against the home team. As bravely as AEI battled, gaining at least parity in the scrums, the writing was on the wall […]


7 January 2012, AEI 24, Berkswell & Balsall II 21

AEI marked the start of 2012 with a return to winning ways in a hastily arranged friendly after another league opponent failed to raise a team. A significant slope and breeze meant that AEI were literally facing an uphill struggle in the first half and, unable to match the physicality […]


17 December 2011, AEI 10, Coventrians II 31

  Shorn of 5 regular players through injury and holiday unavailability a 14 man team went to Coventrians 2 and suffered their first league defeat of the season. Ignoring the numerical disadvantage, AEI opened the scoring after a solid 7 man scrum gave possession to the backs and some good […]
