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.

McKenzie, a Dublin-born goalkeeper, started his career with Scottish junior side Arthurlie. His father was five-time Irish half-mile champion, yet it was football rather than athletics that proved to be his preferred sport. He signed for Argyle in 1934 and despite a nickname of 'Vice' because of the strength of his grip, he only stood between the sticks once in Green – a 1-3 home defeat to Newcastle United in September 1934. In the summer of 1935 he was transferred to Southend United, where he enjoyed more success, playing 120 times in a three-year spell. He also won international recognition whilst playing with Southend, winning his first cap for the Republic of Ireland in 1937 and going on to win nine full caps in total. He was later registered with Hereford United but with the onset of the Second World War, no further League or international appearances were recorded.
