Ned Devine’s will start the 2012 spring season under new sponsorship, Luke’s and will finish the season under An Beal Bocht Cafe.
Ned Devine’s was gratefully sponsored by the Irish hot spot for darts and drinking, Ned Devine’s on McLean Ave in Yonkers. The team’s championship cup for the 2010 season is proudly displayed behind the bar and was always utilized for toasting recent wins. The pub’s owner, Danny, continues to support the BISL, despite dwindling numbers of Irish players.
Ned Devine’s soccer team used to be sponsored by/named Fiona’s, another Irish pub of the same ownership. Around 2001, players from Fiona’s and An Beal Bocht Café (another local bar team) joined together and created the current line-up. The mix of players from both teams proved to be a good choice as Ned’s has been a top team in the BISL ever since.
