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 had 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.

Full Name: Percy Albert M. Cherrett
Born: 12 September 1899
Came from: Portsmouth Went to: Crystal Palace
First game: 01 September 1923 Last game: 20 April 1925
Appearances: 62 (62/0) Goals: 36
Born in Christchurch, Dorset, Cherrett was a centre-forward and occasional inside-right who started his career with local non-league side Boscombe before moving to Portsmouth, where he hit 36 goals in a two-year spell. He made his debut for Argyle by continuing his Fratton Park scoring habit, hitting Argyle's only goal in a defeat at Portsmouth, and went on to maintain his one-in-two scoring prowess with a near-identical record whilst with the Pilgrims, also hitting 36 but in six fewer games than it had taken him with Pompey. He left Argyle when Jack Cock arrived in 1925, joining Crystal Palace, where he hit a half-century of goals, before spells with Bristol City and finishing off closer to home with Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic, and then non-league Cowes on the Isle of Wight.
