Report

The first DV8 Development League was extremely competitive, with Cork Admirals 2nds, Dublin Rebels 2nds and Craigavon Cowboys all finishing on 5-1 Records. The Admirals and Rebels qualified for the Final, which was won by the Admirals 2nds 30-0.

Dublin Dragons dropped down to the DV8 Development League in order to rebuild and managed two wins against newcomers Edenderry Soldiers from Co. Offaly. The other new team, Trinity College Dublin Thunderbolts won one game against the Dragons.

About

The DV8 Development League was an 8-a-side fully kitted league and was set up in 2008 with two main aims: (1) To give teams in the Irish Regions a chance to play Competitive Football while building up their kit & player numbers and (2) to enable 2nds teams of bigger IAFL teams in the main league to field 2nds teams.
