Most Irish lads, when arriving in Leeds headed for the Roscoe as they were sure to be offered a job or someone who could find them work. there was even a board on the pub wall offering lodgings. The landlord Noel Squires was a friend of mine and used to hold music events outside the back of the pub in a marquee. When Noel left the pub,for a short while he took over The White Stag on North St. but when The Foresters premises became available on Brookfield St, he bought it. This was behind Thrifty Van Hire.

He named his premises "The New Roscoe" and this became an overnight success with bands and music events each week.

The New Roscoe was situated in the old Foresters Club in Sheepscar Street South, but the access was from behind via Roseville Road, because of the road lay-out.

Thanks Ian. I didn't think the New Roscoe had a second location and am aware of the road layout around the location.

The New Roscoe closed several months ago.
Don't think anything has been done with the building.
Seem to remember the"urbex" people dong a film after it closed.

having had another look at the map of Leeds i realise i have made a cobblers of the address, another lad i knew at that time was Edward . the manager of Thrifty he said it could be worth a lot of money if it ever came up for sale. Not having lived in Leeds for some years i have lost touch with Noel.
So apologies Tyke bhoy
