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.

Full Name: Henry Radford Ashby
Came from: Burton United Went to: Leicester Fosse
First game: 01 September 1904 Last game: 22 April 1905
Appearances: 41 (41/0) Goals: 0
Ashby was born in Derby in 1875 and began his career with hometown side Derby Athletic. In 1896 he joined Burton Swifts and made 88 appearances for the club over the next two seasons. After a spell with Brighton United he returned to Burton to play for Burton United, an amalgamation of the Swifts and Burton Wanderers. He played 92 times over the following two years before moving to Home Park in 1904.
During his only season with Argyle he was virtually ever-present at right full-back and the 1904-05 club handbook describes him as "a player who has had a good reputation among second leaguers for several seasons". At the end of the campaign he moved on to Leicester Fosse, where he played for two more seasons.
