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 had 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.

First game: 27 September 1905 Last game: 16 April 1906

Born in Stockton, County Durham in 1879, Godley started his career with South Bank, a Northern League side from Middlesbrough. He was a prolific goal-scorer at that level and this led to a move to Second Division Middlesbrough in 1901. After two seasons, and just two appearances for The Boro, he moved on to Stoke, where he also played just twice in his only season with the club.
In 1905 Godley moved to Home Park and much was expected of a player who could play at inside or outside-left, or centre forward. The 1905-06 Argyle handbook described him as "fast, knows the game and shoots well. Should be up in the scoring department at the end of the season". However, he could not make a big impact on the Argyle first team and moved on at the end of the campaign, joining Reading. He went on to play for New Brompton before returning to the North East to finish his career with Darlington.
