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.

Burton became Argyle's fourth new face of the 2021 summer when he signed on the same June day as another town-like name, James Bolton.
Born in Newport, Shropshire, the goalkeeper began his playing career in the youth setup at Shrewsbury Town. Having already achieved England under-16 and under-17 international honours, he was sent on a work experience loan to Market Drayton in August 2013, and a month later to Conference North team Workington. In February 2014 he was rewarded with a two-year professional contract at Shrewsbury, having earned a call-up for his country's under-18 side earlier in the season.
Loan spells at Nuneaton (twice), Southport and Telford followed over the following three years, as did his Football League debut and his only senior game for the Shrews, on the last day of the 2015-16 season.
In July 2017, the 6' 2" stopper signed for Hull City, following the Yorkshire club's relegation from the Premier League. He was sent out on loan to Salford City in his first season as a Tiger, and to Chesterfield in the second. Without winning a place in Hull's senior side, he moved to Cambridge United in League Two on a two-year deal in June 2019, making 50 appearances and helping the U's win promotion to League One in his second season at the club.
Despite the important part he played in Cambridge's promotion campaign, the 24-year-old was released in May 2021, freeing him to sign a two-year deal at Home Park on the same day that club hero Luke McCormick, who it was thought had retired, retained his player registration and signed a new deal as a training goalkeeper.
Sorry, new contributions are not accepted until the player leaves the club.
