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.

Full Name: James Lyons Hindmarsh
Came from: Watford Went to: Stockport County
First game: 05 September 1908 Last game: 30 April 1910
Appearances: 63 (63/0) Goals: 23
Hindmarsh was born in Whitburn, County Durham in 1885 and played for Whitburn Colliery before joining Sunderland in 1905. He made just one appearance in his single season with the club before moving on to Fulham and Watford, spending a year with each side. In 1908 he signed for Argyle, but a knee injury limited his appearances throughout his first twelve months at Home Park. An inside-left who had also played at left-half, Hindmarsh was considered by the writer of the club handbook to be "one of the cleverest players the club has ever had".
His second season with Argyle saw him score 16 goals in 40 league games but he chose to move on at the end of the campaign, joining Stockport County. There, he played 69 times over the next two years before a similar spell with Manchester City, for whom he made 28 appearances. He went on to play for Newport County, a club he also managed from 1922 to 1935.
