Formed in 1963 by a group of Masters and Old Boys from Shipston High School in an area of little Rugby tradition, the initial players were drawn from far afield. For the first season the 'Rams' were a nomadic club with no pitch of their own, relying on the High School facilities and using local pubs for post-match refreshments.
By 1964 they were fielding two sides and, by the generosity of a local farmer, had a pitch of their own at Darlingscote known as 'The Bowl'. In 1968 they rented an old barn at the rear of The Bell Inn and after with assistance from Whitbread Flowers, were able to use this for the Clubhouse and bar. Then in 1973 the club was forced to vacate this building but with the assistance of local benefactors, the local council, the County Council, the RFU and Middlesex RFU, not to mention Club members, plans for a new Clubhouse and ground at Mayo Road were drawn up.
The Club now runs four senior teams, a Veterans team, Colts team as well as Mini and Junior Rugby at eight different age groups. The 2002 season saw the first team run out at Twickenham for the Powergen Junior Vase Final.
