Greens on Screen’s first page was published in January 1999. Its early purpose was to bring Plymouth Argyle a little closer to those unable to see their team, and whilst it has changed a great deal over the years, its core themes - sites and sounds for Westcountry exiles - still stand. The site was very lucky to take on the content of Trevor Scallan’s Semper Viridis in the summer of 2007, and in 2009 launched GoS-DB, a wealth of facts and figures from PAFC’s history. A year later we embarked on a complete history of Argyle, with much-valued contributions from chapter authors.
Greens on Screen is an amateur website and proud of it. It is run by one person as a hobby, although there have been aspects of the site over the years that would be much the poorer without the hard work and much-valued contributions of a small band of volunteers.
Greens on Screen is self-taught and as a result, a little bit quirky. Amongst a few stubborn principles, advertisements will never appear (and don’t get me started on the plague of betting promotions on other sites). It began its life before many others, including the club’s official site, when there was a large gap to be filled, and although there is now a wide variety to choose from, GoS’s sole aim, to be a service to fellow supporters, still seems to have a place.
Thanks to Dave Rowntree for many of the player images after 1984.

Parrett moved to Home Park in August 2010 on loan from Tottenham Hotspur. After beginning his career in the Queens Park Rangers youth system, he moved to Spurs in 2007, aged just 15, for an initial fee rumoured to be £1million. An England under-16, under-17 and under-19 international, he captained the Tottenham youth team and impressed in his performances for their reserves before making his first team debut in a UEFA Cup tie in February 2009. A box-to-box midfielder and free-kick specialist, he had a brief spell on loan at Aldershot Town in September 2009 and joined Argyle after agreeing a new three-year deal at White Hart Lane. What was supposed to be a season-long loan at Home Park was curtailed after just three months following Parrett’s dismissal during an FA Cup tie against Swindon Town, which ended a disappointing spell at the club.
After returning to White Hart Lane he was loaned to Charlton Athletic in 2011, playing nine games and scoring once, and had also won three England U20 caps by the end of the year. Parrett then made two appearances for Spurs in the Europa League in 2011-12 before being loaned to Yeovil Town in January 2012 for the remainder of the season. He made ten appearances and scored once for the League One side before moving to Swindon Town for another loan spell in March 2013. The loan spell at the County Ground was terminated abruptly in April 2013 with Swindon's manager unwilling to explain the reason.
Parrett returned to Tottenham and was subsequently released by the club in June 2013. In the following October he signed for Stevenage until the end of the 2013–14 season, when he then signed a new contract at the club.
