Report

Tullamore Phoenix won the league, largely down to being the only team that played a full season. Craigavon Cowboys 2nds, Carrickfergus Knights 2nds and Dublin Rebels 2nds won all their games, though they only played a limited schedule. Erris Rams & UCD 2nds managed one win apiece.

Team Changes from 2009

The third season of the DV8 Development League saw Craigavon Cowboys, Trinity College & UCD make the move up to the full 11-a-side IAFL, to be replaced by their 2nds teams. Dublin Dragons also made the move back up to the IAFL. The Midlands Soldiers disbanded and were replaced in the Midlands by Tullamore Phoenix. The IT Carlow Chargers entered the league but lost their sponsor and disbanded after one game. The Dublin Rebels again fielded a second team in the league as did the Carrickfergus Knights.

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.
