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.

Born: 11 June 1899
Came from: Kilsyth Rangers Went to: East Stirlingshire
First game: 31 December 1921 Last game: 05 May 1923
Appearances: 14 (14/0) Goals: 2
The Kirkintilloch-born left back arrived at Home Park from Kilsyth Rangers in Scotland in readiness for Argyle's second season of League football. Just three appearances followed in his debut season, although a more respectable eleven came in the next, together with two goals – away at Merthyr and Queens Park Rangers.
Finding a regular berth hard to come by, Devine returned north of the border to join East Stirlingshire (with some evidence that he might have made a brief stop at Exeter City on the way). Whilst appearance details are incomplete, records show a peripatetic association with a variety of clubs thereafter including Kettering Town, Charlton Athletic, Dundee, Southport and Crewe Alexandra before winding down closer to home, back at Kilsyth Juniors and ultimately Croy Celtic.
