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.

Hemmings joined Argyle on an initial short-term loan deal from Wolverhampton Wanderers. A product of the Molineux academy, he had been with the Wolves since the age of nine and was a former England youth international who could play up front or on the wing. Shortly after signing his first professional contract in February 2009, he had a loan spell with Cheltenham Town and his Wolves first team debut followed later that season. The 2009-10 campaign saw Hemmings hampered by injury and he was limited to reserve team action, but in October 2010 he spent three months on loan at Torquay United, after which he was given a contract extension by Wolves.
Hemmings scored against Northampton Town on his Argyle debut and some impressive performances led to his loan spell being extended until the end of the 2011-12 campaign. On returning to Molineux he was not offered a new contract and joined League One Walsall in July 2012. He immediately became a regular member of the Saddlers' first team and again scored on his debut, against Brentford.
In March 2014 he went on loan for a month to Burton Albion, a deal which was extended as the Brewers successfully pushed for the play-offs. He wasn’t offered a deal as the Brewers failed to win promotion and after being released by Walsall, he signed for League Two side Dagenham & Redbridge on a one-year contract. After a successful 2014-15 season, Hemmings was rewarded with a further year's contract but was unable to save the Daggers from the drop out of the Football League. He left the club in June 2016, having scored 12 goals in 91 appearances.
His next move was to Nottinghamshire to sign for Mansfield Town on a free transfer in June 2016. Hemmings made a total of 22 appearances in the 2016-17 season, scoring 2 goals, before being released at the end of the campaign by Stags' manager, Steve Evans.
In June 2017, Hemmings signed a one year contract with Boston United (also known as The Pilgrims) in the Vanarama National League North (the 6th tier of English football).

From Stan Beal in Plymouth on 10/11/2013 ...
A little hit-and-miss for me - one of our better players at a difficult time for the club. His goal on Boxing Day 2011 to complete a two-goal comeback against Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Ground (the second time we had come back from 2-0 down at their place in a year!) will live long in the memory for any Argyle fan and remains one of the high points in the short time I've supported the club.
