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.

Chadburn was born in Mansfield in 1873 and played as an amateur for Leicester Fosse, Mansfield Unitarians and Mansfield Greenhalghs before joining Lincoln City in 1892. An outside-right, he scored 10 goals in 27 appearances for the Imps before signing for Notts County in 1894. After three productive seasons there he joined Wolverhampton Wanderers but rarely made the first team and moved on to West Bromwich Albion three years later. Chadburn helped West Brom win promotion to the top flight in 1901/02 as the champions of the Second Division.
In 1903 he joined Liverpool but made just two appearances for the club before moving to Home Park towards the end of the club's first professional season. Despite being an adaptable utility player he could not hold down a place in the first team and moved to Swindon Town at the end of following season. He went on to play for Mansfield Mechanics and Woodhouse Rangers.

The only thing that I can add is that John Jack Chadburn is my great grandad.
