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.

Cook was unlucky to spend much of his time at Home Park as understudy to the great Fred Craig. After his early playing days in the West Riding local leagues, Cook made 11 appearances for Leeds City in 1918 as a 'guest' player. Following Leeds City's expulsion from the Football League due to financial irregularities in the 1919-20 season, the Castleford-born keeper was released, without playing a league game, and signed for hometown Castleford Town. He then joined Argyle in the latter stages of 1921, following the completion of the first Football League season. Cook found the redoubtable Craig very reliable and made just six appearences in Argyle's second League season and one in the following campaign before leaving to join Brighton, where he featured more regularly in a two year stay. Football League records list a goalkeeper of the same name making nine appearances for Stockport County in 1928; it's unclear whether this is the same player.
