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.

Connor was born in the Garngad area of Glasgow which is now known as Royston. Starting his youth career with St Roch's, he then moved to Celtic in 1932 but was unable to establish himself in the first team, scoring just once in four games. He was loaned to Airdrie in 1932-33 and scored more goals than the number of games he played, 22 goals in 21 games. He repeated the feat in a loan spell with Albion Rovers in 1934, 8 goals in 6 games, before making his move to Airdrie permanent, and in a two year spell scored a very productive 47 goals in 70 games. In 1936 he made the long move south for two seasons at Home Park, scoring 17 goals in his first campaign, including two on his debut. He lost his regular centre-forward place the following season after the arrival of Bill Hullett, Clarrie Bourton and Charlie Fletcher, and deciding his future lay elsewhere, moved to Swansea Town in 1938. He then returned to Scotland to play some wartime matches for Queen of the South, and after the war ended, made six appearances for Alloa Athletic in 1946 and five for St Johnstone the following year. After calling time on his playing career he returned to where it had all began, as St Roch's manager.
