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.

Brown was brought to Argyle by his father, manager Ken Brown, after serving as an apprentice with Norwich City. He established himself as the first choice right-back in 1988–89 and caused many a defence problems with his pace before moving to West Ham in 1991.
He scored five league goals for the Hammers but the winner against Manchester United in April 1992 was especially sweet for Leeds United fans as it basically handed the title on a plate to the Peacocks and severely dented United’s hopes.
After falling out of favour at Upton Park he had loan spells with Huddersfield Town, Reading, Southend United, Crystal Palace and Birmingham City before joining the latter permanently. Just six months later he was sold to Millwall where he had a successful 18-month stay. After a short time with Gillingham, he moved into non-league football with Kingstonian and went on to play for Portadown, Barry Town, Tilbury and, finally, FC Torrevieja in Spain.
In 2000 he started his coaching career at Barry Town, then after three seasons in Wales moved to Spain where he was a coach, manager & director of Football at CD Javea, a Spanish regional league side.
After nearly six years in sunny Spain, he returned to the UK and had spells with Grays Athletic, Tooting & Mitcham, Barnet and Chelmsford City. Following the departure of Dean Holdsworth as Chelmsford boss in November 2013, Brown took charge as caretaker manager. A UEFA 'A' Licence coach, he was appointed Dagenham & Redbridge under-16 manager in January 2014 before becoming the League Two club's academy manager.
