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.

McKenna began his career in Scottish Junior football with Blantyre Celtic before joining Aberdeen in 1944, where he was a teammate of Bill Strauss, George Taylor and Stan Williams. He was part of the Scottish Cup winning team in 1947 and captained the side in 1948-49. Moving to Home Park in the summer of 1952, McKenna could not force his way into the side and had to wait until the final game of the season before making his Argyle debut. He left the club soon after, returning to Scotland with St Johnstone.

Having transferred from Aberdeen FC to Plymouth Argyle on 16 August 1952, surprisingly Pat McKenna played only one first team competitive League game for Plymouth in his two seasons with the club. When given a free transfer by Plymouth, Pat returned to Scotland and joined St Johnstone in the old Scottish Second Division on 27 February 1954. However, Pat only spent one month at St Johnstone and in that short time, played three competitive League games before departing St Johnstone on 26 March 1954 and joining Derry City in the Northern Irish League, where he spent two seasons. On 27 October 1956, Pat returned to Scotland, and as his family remained in Aberdeen, he signed for Scottish Highland Football League Club, Fraserburgh FC, in North East Scotland, some 40 miles north of Aberdeen, and which was in easy commuting distance by train from his Aberdeen home, and where he happily remained for four season before retiring at the end of the Highland League season in May 1960 at 40 years ...
