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.

Full Name: William Fotheringham Bauchop
Born: 18 January 1882
Came from: Alloa Athletic Went to: Heart of Midlothian
First game: 16 September 1905 Last game: 28 April 1906
Appearances: 7 (7/0) Goals: 1
Bauchop was born in Alloa in 1882 and played for his hometown club, Alloa Athletic, as well as Abercorn and East Stirlingshire, before heading south to join Argyle in the summer of 1905. Primarily an outside-left, the Argyle handbook of 1905/06 states that he was "a young stranger we know little of, but if trial matches go for anything he should turn out a real find". Sadly this optimism was not borne out and he made little impression on the first team during his single season at Home Park.
After moving back to Scotland to play for Heart of Midlothian, Bauchop also had a short spell with Carlisle United before spending two seasons with Stockport County. He scored 6 goals in 41 appearances for The Hatters and in 1911 signed for Leicester Fosse, playing 18 times in his only season at the club. He went on to play for Norwich City, Fulham and Grimsby Town before returning to Alloa Athletic to end his career.
