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.

Knight began his career with Tottenham Hotspur, playing under his future manager at Argyle, Jack Tresadern. After two seasons at White Hart Lane he moved on to Leeds United and remained a regular member of the Elland Road squad throughout war-time football. Despite this he was not involved when the Football League recommenced and moved to Home Park. Beginning the 1947-48 season in the Argyle first team he lost his place after less than a month and shortly afterwards moved on to Bradford City, his final professional club.

From David Fell in Leeds on 05/05/2016 ...
Knight sustained knee ligament problems whilst with Spurs. This curtailed his football career.
He was born in the small mining village of Lingdale in East Cleveland which produced many pro footballers, including George Hardwick who captained Middlesbrough, England and Great Britain, and Bobby Smith, double-winner with Spurs and an England International.
