Report

The League was won by the Craigavon Cowboys after the two student teams were deducted points for failing to fulfil league requirements. They had finished on a 6-2 record, the same as UCD, with Trinity on 7-1.

At the other end of the table the Dragons picked up three wins and the Erris Rams managed two wins against the Soldiers, who failed to win a match for the second year in a row.

A victory over the Midland Soldiers gave the Craigavon Cowboys the title on the last day of the season.

Team Changes from 2008

The second season of the DV8 development League saw the previous years finalists Cork Admirals 2nds and Dublin Rebels 2nds drop out to be replaced by UCD Sentinels and Erris Rams from Mayo. The Edenderry Soldiers merged with the Mullingar Archers and became the Midlands Soldiers, based in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.

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.
