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.
Thanks to Dave Rowntree for many of the player images after 1984.

Hargreaves began his career as a trainee at Grimsby Town, making over 50 appearances for the club and spending a loan spell at Scarborough before a move to Hull City. In two years there he was in and out of the first team and left on a free transfer to West Bromwich Albion. Unable to break into the team he moved to Hereford United, initially on loan, and spent two seasons at the club before moving to Argyle.
Hargreaves was a regular in the side during his time at Home Park but at the end of his contract, chose to move on a free transfer to Northampton Town in the summer of 2000. He was the Northampton player of the year in 2001-02 and spent four successful seasons there before a year at Brentford. He went on to play regularly over two seasons for Oxford United and four at Torquay United, before returning to Oxford.
On 6 January 2014 he took his first step into football management when he was chosen for the hot-seat at Torquay United, selecting former Argyle men Lee Hodges and Ken Veysey (already in place as a coach at the club) as part of his management team. They were unable to keep Torquay in the Football League that season, despite an upturn in form and performances, and a disappointing season in the Conference National followed, during which a rapid return to the Football League never looked likely.
In June 2015, following the takeover of Torquay by a new consortium, Hodges, Hargreaves, and Veysey were placed on 'gardening leave' after turning down a significant pay cut. Their exits from the club were confirmed just two days later.
