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 Kilwinning in North Ayrshire in 1935, Fulton joined the ground staff and burgeoning youth setup at Manchester United at the age of 17. Faced with stiff competition from Matt Busby’s ‘babes’, he was persuaded by Argyle’s player-manager Jack Rowley - formerly of United and who knew Fulton at Old Trafford - to move to Home Park in the summer of 1957.
Fulton made his first team debut at home to Queens Park Rangers in February 1958, the first of six consecutive wins for the club. Over the next two years the stocky left-back worked hard for the the number three shirt, playing a part in Argyle's successful promotion side of 1958-59, before making the position his own in the early seasons of the sixties. By 1964 his place was less certain, and that summer he left Home Park for rivals Exeter City, where he played 37 times over the following two seasons before hanging up his boots at the age of 31.

From Steve Rhodes in Romsey, Hants on 06/02/2018 ...
60 years ago, after training on Thursday 6 February 1958, Bryce Fulton would have cut a frustrated figure. The Argyle team for the derby game at Exeter City had been named and once again he had been overlooked. He had arrived at Home Park in the summer of 1957, having been signed from Manchester United. At that time United had an abundance of good (and some great) young players. Argyle manager Jack Rowley, who had joined Argyle from Manchester United in 1955, believed that some of the fringe players at Old Trafford could do a job at Home Park. He persuaded Fulton that he would have more first team opportunities at Home Park, but 8 months on he had still not made his Football League debut. He had already asked for a transfer, angry that he had turned down two Second Division clubs to join Argyle.
Recruited to the Old Trafford groundstaff in 1952, in 1953 Fulton had been a member of the Manchester United under 18 team that won the first ever FA Youth Cup. He played right back while ... More
