Magnet pub in Southey

Recommended Posts

its not very often they just pull a pub down like that. I heard it was a drugs place, is that true.? Is the old southey green working mens club still across the road.? Maybe someone from southey will know.

 

the magnet was for down to earth people i had a sister who worked there and southey club and my brothers worked ther too it was rough at times but not like these days there would be a punch up then that be it not carry things on like these days

The Magnet used to be a good pub, when I was a kid there used to be a tossing ring on a sunday and the spivs would pay some of the young lads to look out for the coppers and if one was around everyone would scarper like double quick.It was a pub for older people no disrespect to anyone where the young ones wernt bawlin and shouting,thats when Ted Catlin had it, he used to play for Wednesday.He retired and the looneys took over and the police were always too busy,ugh. whats new.When we were young Southey club would run a trip to Cleethorpes for the day,the only holiday most of us got .apple orange bag of crisps bottle of pop great we all wanted a pee after five miles and a ticket for fish and chips when we got there.We were supposed to queue up yerv never seen as many feights in yer life. My mother was always a steward so ide swop tickets so I wernt on her coach its marvelleous I always came home with more bruises than I went with!!The coaches lined up from the Magnet right down to the White horse, not anymore,have we all gone mad in this world today full of PC.

 

those were the days when i was a child i used to be a stewardess sometimes for the skegness trip few years later with my own children

yeah ,the working mens club is still across the road .

 

As for the Magnet , it was a blessing in disguise ,the day they pulled it down .it was on a par with the Castle in town ,which has been closed down by the police .

 

The Magnet was a very apt name for the pub ,as it was a magnet for petty criminals and trouble makers.
