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.

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.
