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.

Mark Graves was an Isleworth-born forward who served his apprenticeship at Home Park, making his debut in December 1977 at just 16 years old. He had to wait another 18 months for his first of three goals for the club, and in a total of 42 appearances for Argyle, he never scored at Home Park. He moved into non-League football with Wealdstone in the Alliance Premier League, winning the Supporters' Player of the Year award in the 1982-83 season and netting 30 goals in the following campaign.

From Tony Phipps in Plymouth on 14/12/2014 ...
I went to school with Mark. A couple of years older than me but even at school he was class. He moved with his mum and brother Dean to Cornworthy, a village 6 odd miles outside Totnes. His mum worked in the village pub. They later moved to Harbertonford. Mark attended King Edward VI Comprehensive School. I remember him playing at 'Sid James Park'. I never saw a lot of him as I was in the Navy by then. He was always a nice guy at school. His brother Dean went on to play for Argyle Youth with another Totnes lad, Nigel Jarvis.
