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.

The younger brother of ex-Pilgrim Aaron Bentley, Jordan followed a similar path from Tamerton Foliot to St Boniface College in Plymouth before moving to Ivybridge College, and he also represented Plymouth Schoolboys at various levels. He joined Argyle's academy at the age of 13 and progressed through the ranks as a promising central defender before winning a two-year apprenticeship in 2015. He sat on the senior bench for the first time in March 2016 and just weeks later made his debut as a substitute in the 5-0 home win over Hartlepool United on the final Saturday of the 2015-16 season, a week after his 17th birthday.
In June 2016 Bentley was rewarded with his first professional contract, and five months later he made his only start for the Pilgrims in the EFL Trophy game against a Swansea City under-21 side at the Liberty Stadium, but he was sent off before half-time.
In September 2017 Bentley moved on loan to National League side Sutton United, where his team-mates included former Pilgrim Simon Walton and the assistant manager was another ex-Green, Ian Baird. He was recalled from Sutton because of a lack of game time, but his chances of a first team breakthrough or another loan were cut short by a broken leg suffered in a training ground accident in January 2018.
Bentley accepted a one-year contract extension in June 2018, and following his rehabilitation, went to Truro City for a month's loan that October. However, his broken leg continued to trouble him and following medical advice, his time at Home Park came to an end with his retirement from the professional game at the end of the 2018-19 season.
Still only 20, Bentley was eager to try his luck in local football, and after further recovery, joined Plymouth Parkway in the Western League in early 2020. He later played for Bodmin Town and Helston Athletic, where he again teamed up with his brother and another former Pilgrim, Aaron.
