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.

Featherby was born in King's Lynn and played for a multitude of clubs in his career. Starting out locally with Whitefriars, the inside-forward then played for Lynn Town and represented Norfolk County. In 1924 he was signed by Norwich City and made 26 Football League appearances between 1924 and 1925. He then moved out of the League and played briefly for Northfleet and in 1927 was registered with Millwall and non-league Peterborough & Fletton United. Returning to the League in 1928 with Merthyr Town, he moved on to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the same year, playing 21 games and scoring 6 goals. In 1930 he appeared for Reading before moving to Queen's Park Rangers the following year. His second club of 1931 was Mansfield Town and in 1932 he signed for Crewe Alexandra before returning to Merthyr Town. After such a peripatetic career, he moved to Argyle in 1933 and spent a comparatively stable two seasons at Home Park, although playing only a handful of games in that time. Moving on again in 1935, he joined Notts County before winding down an exhaustive, nomadic career with King's Lynn back in Norfolk.
