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.

Hutchins began his career with his hometown club Middlesbrough, but was released after only playing for their youth side. He then joined local team Stockton Juniors, where his performances on the wing brought him to the attention of several league clubs. He eventually joined Leicester City but could not break into the first team, making just a handful of appearances. However, whilst playing for Leicester reserves against Argyle he impressed Billy Bingham and shortly afterwards moved to Home Park. Frustrated by the lack of opportunities during his first season with Argyle, Hutchins requested a transfer, and the board agreed. However, when no offers were received he stayed at the club and finally got his chance early in the 1970-71 season. His speed, trickery and crossing ability often had the crowd on their feet and he was also a regular goalscorer. His impressive performances led to a transfer to Blackburn Rovers, where he stayed for two years despite a rumour that he was to return to Argyle, before a move to Bradford City. In seven years with Bradford he made over 250 appearances before a series of injuries led to his retirement. He went on to play non-league football for Scarborough.
