10 December 2011, AEI 24, Manor Park III 41

  A two week break from rugby due to opposition cancellations meant that AEI were rusty from the enforced inactivity and the scratch 15 (containing 10 forwards and only 5 recognised backs) lost a hastily arranged friendly after yet another cry-off from their league opponents. AEI started the brighter and […]

19 November 2011, AEI 40, Broadstreet IV 15

  A top of the table clash saw AEI leapfrog the league leaders with a comfortable away win and was a fitting send-off for Joe Bott who faces a potentially season ending operation on a troublesome wrist injury. The team knew that the outcome of this fixture could define the […]

12 November 2011, AEI 24, Atherstone II 24

A spirited second-half comeback saw a 14-man AEI earn a valuable away draw against the 3rd placed Atherstone and maintain AEI’s unbeaten league start. After honouring the heroic sacrifices of Britain armed services with a perfectly observed one minute silence, AEI set about erasing last week’s poor performance with a […]

5 November 2011, AEI 12, Cosby 31

AEI’s unbeaten streak ended in a match notable only for the way the AEI lost the mental and physical game so soon after Chris Hadley had opened the scoring with a well worked effort from the whole team. With such recently comfortable victories and playing a friendly, the AEI team […]

29 October 2011, AEI 81, Stoke Old Boys 10

AEI made it 5 from 5 with a comprehensive away victory. Clint Nykamp marked his return to the AEI fold with a brace of tries as once again the backline demonstrated their pace and finishing after the hard work put in by the forwards. With a pack dominating their counterparts […]

22 October 2011, AEI 45, Standard 26

  Playing against 14 men, it was perhaps inevitable that AEI recorded another win but the manner of victory was less than satisfying. Unusually, AEI made a bright start and used their numerical superiority to take a 19-0 lead in the first 20 minutes with tries from J Jenkins (2) […]

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 […]
