15 October 2011, AEI 50, Daventry III 17

  A dry, hard, home pitch gave the AEI backs a chance to shine once more and continue to finish off the hard work put in by the forwards. Apart from maintaining the 100% record the game was also notable for two things: S Oxberry fulfilled a lifetime’s ambition by […]


8 October 2011, AEI 45, Old Leamingtonians III 44

A comeback worthy of Hollywood maintained AEI’s unbeaten start to the season and demonstrated both the good and bad in the team. The first half of the game was truly awful in defensive terms with the AEI players, excepting man of the match I Cockerill, seemingly unable or unwilling to […]


1 October 2011, AEI 78, Spartans III 19

AEI’s return to their spiritual home at the GEC ground was celebrated with a rampaging display of running rugby and intelligent use of the supporting players against a bare 15 Spartans who were unable to match their illustrious forefathers’ defence at Thermopylae in stemming the tide of AEI scores. The […]


24 September 2011, AEI 17 Southam II 12 and AEI 12, Old Newtonians 7

A hastily arranged friendly mini-tournament took place at Southam when two visiting teams showed up with Southam only able to field 28 for both matches. In the event, Southam loaned AEI a 15th player and three mini games (20 minutes per half) took place with AEI opting to play the […]


22 September 2011, AEI 5, Southam II 89

An understrength AEI were again left pondering “what might have been” in a one-sided fixture whose only bright point was once more the effort displayed by the 13 players who were able to participate. Facing up to a confident, younger and thus far unbeaten Southam second team the 12 AEI […]


15 September 2011, AEI 20, Broadstreet IV 36

AEI continued their winless start to the season with another defeat away to Broadstreet but were encouraged by the performance of the 13 players who were able to take to the field. With several key players missing through injury and other commitments, the AEI were grateful to Broadstreet for the […]


10 September 2011, AEI 29, Coventry Tech 20

AEI’s first league game ended in victory against a disciplined and physical Coventry Tech 2. Tries by messrs Stretton, Jenkins, Bott and Lawson (2) were almost undone by weak tackling which allowed the Coventry Tech forwards too much space to run into and forced the AEI into a scrambling defence. […]


3 September 2011, AEI 12, AEI Fathers & Sons 12

In the traditional intra club season opener, the fathers and their sons took on a select XV and fought out a tough draw. The game was a celebration of the resilience of some of the elder statesmen of the AEI (and their fecundity) and gave the AEI “family” an opportunity […]


20 April 2002, AEI 12, Towcestrians III 15

AEI, complete with three special guest players c/o the Rugby Tailenders, took on Towcester III at the Hillmorten Road ground on Saturday. The game began with scrappy play from both teams. It was obvious from the beginning that this was to be a forwards game with few breaks. Towcester opened […]
