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.

Leavey was born in Guildford in 1886 but moved to Plymouth at an early age. He played for local sides Sutton, St Jude's and Woodland Villa before joining Argyle in 1907, where he soon progressed from the reserves to the chiefs. A versatile winger, he was able to play at both outside-left and outside-right, but also helped out at inside-left when required.
After three seasons at Home Park, with his first team opportunities limited, Leavey moved on to Liverpool in June 1910 but made just five appearances for his new club during the following campaign. In 1911 he signed for Barnsley and contributed to the side which won the FA Cup in 1912. Sadly, he suffered a broken leg in the quarter-final (third replay) victory over Bradford City and could not play any further part in the cup run.
The injury restricted Leavey to just 28 appearances in his two years at Oakwell and in 1913 he moved on to Bradford Park Avenue. He went on to play for Llanelli, Portsmouth and Boscombe.
