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.

Local boy Davey graduated at Home Park as an apprentice and made his debut as an 18-year-old in 1966. He began his career as a forward but showed his versatility by converting into a full-back in 1970. He was a small but tenacious player, and realised a dream by playing against the great Denis Law when Argyle faced Manchester City in the 1974 League Cup semi-final. Not only did Davey play against one of his idols, but he also gave Argyle the lead on that memorable day. He left Argyle to join Hereford United, whom he helped win Division Three in 1976, and went on to play for Portsmouth and Exeter City. After retiring, he played non-league football for Bideford, Liskeard Athletic, Saltash United and St Blazey.
