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.

Davis was born in Plymouth in 1890 and played for Oreston Rovers before joining Argyle in November 1913. He had to wait until the following season to make his first team debut, and the outbreak of war then put his career on hold, although he did assist Gillingham as a guest player in the second half of the 1914-15 campaign.
During the war Davis rose through the ranks to become a captain and at the cessation of hostilities returned to Home Park. He made just two further appearances, at right-back, before leaving for Newport County in 1920. He also went on to play for Torquay United.
