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.

Grozier, an outside-right, was born in Rutherglen and began his playing days with Rutherglen Glencairn. He joined Argyle - his only senior club - at the age of 25, and although not a prolific goal-scorer, became one of a select band of Argyle players to have scored four goals in one game, a 6-1 home win over Crystal Palace in December 1929. He was a small and lively forward, and was an automatic choice for the Pilgrims for six seasons in the 1930s, spending nine seasons in total at Home Park. He played his final first team game in October 1935 and retired from football at the end of that season.

From David Junior Grozier in Coweta, Oklahoma, USA on 10/01/2016 ...
Tommy was my uncle and as good as he was I was told by my father [David Moyles Brown Grozier] that their sister Beth could outplay the boys! He also told me she was dubbed Lady Beth in Scotland. I don't know if this is true, if you could check this out it may be an interesting addition to uncle Tommy's publication. I'm doing our family tree at present and their were seven kids in the family, four sons and three daughters (Jeanie b.1900, Elizabeth b.1901, James b.1905, b.David 1906, b.Thomas 1907, Isabelle b.? and John b.?). If I can be of any further help please let me know and if you can give me any information on his siblings I would appreciate it. As far as I know they were all born in Rutherglen, just outside of Glasgow. Thank you and I enjoyed the write up on uncle Tommy. I have a grandson [Bryce Grozier, 12 years old] the team he plays on in Phoenix, Arizona, USA won the State competition last year and he scored a goal in the final game. I hope he is following in his great uncle's footsteps!
Thank you, David J. Grozier.
