Report

Drogheda Lightning won the Dv8 Development League with 9 Points. Both the Lightning and Trim Bulldogs played a full schedule while the 2nds teams played a half- or three-quarter- schedule. The Lightning won both games against both Trim Bulldogs & Dublin Dragons 2nds, but lost matches against the three 2nds teams from Ulster.

Team Changes from 2011

The Tullamore Phoenix made the step up the the full 11-a-side IAFL to be replaced by their 2nds team. The Belfast Trojans 2nds team were a new entry.

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.
