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.

Cardiff-born Fowler joined Argyle from Welsh non-League club Maerdy, beginning his Home Park career in the Pilgrims's second season of League football. He played most of his career as a centre-forward or sometimes as an inside-forward, and despite often considered as Argyle's second choice striker, first behind Frank Richardson and then Percy Cherrett, he finished the 1922-23 season as leading scorer with 17 goals, including a hat-trick against Exeter City in the 5-1 home win in March 1923. With an impressive scoring record of 25 goals from 39 games, he was bound to attract interest and moved back closer to home with Swansea Town in February 1924. Town paid £1,280 – then a Welsh club record fee – and were duly rewarded as he chalked up a century of both appearances and goals, and was also capped six times by Wales. On leaving Vetch Field, Fowler saw out his career with Clapton Orient where he still found the net frequently during a two-season spell.
