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.

Half-back Edwards was noted for his strength and erratic behaviour throughout his career, which could explain his broad selection of clubs. Born in Staffordshire in 1875, he joined Burslem Port Vale, then of the Football League Second Division, in February 1894. He was a regular for the rest of the season, scoring his first two goals in the Football League in March 1894 at Vale's Athletic Ground. The following month, in the final game of the season, he scored Vale's consolation goal in a 2–1 loss to Liverpool at Anfield. In total he played 12 games for Vale, scoring three goals.
Edwards then transferred to Stockport County in November 1894, although no appearances are recorded, and he returned to Vale in January 1896, but only played three more league games before leaving at the end of the season.
After time with Grays United and Bolton Wanderers, he transferred to Queens Park Rangers in May 1902 where he made 15 appearances and scored four goals. From west London, he then moved to the South West and was playing for Cornish side Essa (the Cornish name for Saltash and the precursor to Saltash United) in 1903 when he signed for Argyle, ahead of the club's first season in professional football.
Edwards was mainly a reserve right-half during his time with the club and made just three first-team appearances. He was released in 1904 and returned to Essa.
