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.

Born in Homerton in the London Borough of Hackney, the left-winger played for seven clubs in a 12 year career that was ended by the Second World War. Starting out with Clapton Orient in 1927, Fletcher moved on to Crystal Palace the following year and then Merthyr Town in 1929. With a little more experience to his name he returned from Wales to sign for Clapton Orient a second time in 1930 and this time stayed two years, making 120 appearances and scoring 32 goals. In 1933 he moved across London to Brentford, where he played 104 times and scored 25 goals in another two years. In 1935 he moved to Burnley (62 matches and 21 goals) before making the move to Plymouth in 1937. After his debut, a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford, he played occasionally for the first team but a year later left for Ipswich Town. He remained registered at Portman Road throughout the war years and then in in 1945, signed for a third time for Clapton Orient - who that season changed their name to Leyton Orient - although he made no further Football League appearances.
