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.

Plymouth-born Haynes was a prominent local footballer for many years before joining Argyle. He began his career with St Andrews and also played for Kitto Institute, Oreston Rovers and Brooklyn before joining the original Argyle FC in 1901. He made 38 appearances for the team during the 1901/02 season but left after just two games of the following campaign when moved by manager Arthur Jackson to half-back from his preferred position of forward.
Haynes immediately signed for Green Waves and scored twice as his new side defeated Argyle 4-3 the following week. He spent three years with Green Waves, playing in the team that defeated Swindon Town in the FA Cup in November 1904, and also turned out for Crownhill in 1902/03, before returning to Home Park as Assistant Trainer in 1905. Whilst still registered as a player, he made a handful of appearances as emergency cover over the next five seasons. In 1910 Haynes was appointed Trainer, a position he held until the 1934/35 season.
