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 had 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.

Born in the village of Strathmiglo in Fife, Kay was a centre-forward who joined Argyle from Cowdenbeath in December 1919. He played for the reserves until his opportunity came in the March of that season: two appearances in four days that led the Western Evening Herald to conclude that "he lacks the dash and vim which are so essential in a successful pivot". However, he scored freely for the reserves and won Plymouth & District League and Devon Cup medals.
Kay returned north of the border in July 1920 to join Dundee Hibernian (who three years later became Dundee United). However, five months later, after just three appearances, he was given a free transfer and a cash settlement of £12 to allow him to sign for Lochgelly United. In the summer of 1921 he joined Raith Rovers and 12 months later came a move to Cupar F.C., just a few miles from his birthplace.
