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.

Malcolm was born in Thornaby-on-Tees in 1889 and played local football for Thornaby St Mark's, Thornaby St Patrick's and Darlington St Augustine's. In 1909 he had a trial with Woolwich Arsenal before signing for Fulham, where he played just four times in little over a year before moving to Home Park in December 1910. A versatile performer who could perform equally well at half-back or centre-forward, he made a promising start with Argyle but suffered an injury which kept him out for the second half of the 1910-11 campaign.
He returned to the first team at the start of the following season and his form over the next fourteen months led to a transfer to Middlesbrough, for a fee of £1000, in October 1912. Over the next two years Malcolm made almost 100 appearances for Boro, before his career was interrupted by World War One. At the end of the conflict he joined Darlington, going on to play 166 games over the next five years. He ended his career in 1926 with a short spell at Durham City.
