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: Isaac Evenson
Came from: West Bromwich Albion Went to: Nottingham Forest
First game: 16 September 1908 Last game: 30 April 1910
Appearances: 57 (57/0) Goals: 2
Evenson was born in Manchester in 1878 and began his career with local club Tonge. After a brief trial with Glossop North End in 1898 he returned to Tonge, before joining Stockport County two years later. He made 34 appearances for the club over the next three years and then moved on to Leicester Fosse. His two seasons in Leicester saw him score 20 goals in 52 games.
In 1905, after a brief spell with Luton Town, Evenson signed for Clapton Orient, where he also spent two seasons and played more than 60 times. He then signed for West Bromwich Albion in 1907, moving on to Home Park a year later. A versatile performer, he had played at inside-left, left-half and centre-half throughout his career, but it was at the heart of the defence that he made his mark with Argyle.
Evenson was virtually ever-present during his first season with the club, and was appointed captain at the start of the 1909-10 campaign. However, he could not hold down a regular place in the side and was released at the end of the season, joining Nottingham Forest. He also went on to play for Stalybridge Celtic.
