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.

Full Name: Alfie Sean Devine
Born: 01 August 2004
Came from: Tottenham Hotspur Went to:
First game: 20 January 2024 Last game: 02 March 2024
Appearances: 8 (6/2) Goals: 0
An attacking midfielder, who can play deeper, Devine was a Liverpool academy player but was released at the age of 11. He joined Wigan Athletic four months later, and made his Wigan under-23 debut aged just 15. The attacking midfielder was part of the team that beat Tottenham Hotspur in the fourth round of the 2019–20 FA Youth Cup, coming on as a late substitute. Having impressed against Spurs, he then joined them from the Wigan youth system for around £300,000 in July 2020, whilst the Latics were in Administration.
He made his senior debut for Spurs in January 2021, in a televised FA Cup 3rd round match against non-league Marine. He came on as a substitute at the start of the second half and scored, capping a 5–0 win. His debut at 16 years and 163 days made him the youngest player to have played for Tottenham in a senior game and hence also their youngest ever scorer.
Having made two appearances and scored once for Spurs, in August 2023, he joined EFL League One club Port Vale on loan for the 2023–24 season. He went on to make 26 appearances and scored three goals. In October 2023 sealed his place in Vale folklore when he scored the only goal of the game at Mansfield Town to put the Valliants through to the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup for the first time in the club's history.
Devine has represented England at under-16, under-19 and under-20 levels, usually playing an age level up. He was included in the under-19 squad that won the 2022 UEFA European under-19 Championship and also the 2023 FIFA under-20 World Cup. He played both tournaments under the leadership of future Argyle head coach Ian Foster.
It was therefore no great surprise when, in the January 2024 transfer window, he was recalled from Port Vale by Spurs in order to be loaned to Argyle and re-united with Foster, becoming the third signing of the new Head Coach’s stint in the Home Park hot seat.
Sorry, new contributions are not accepted until the player leaves the club.
