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.

Perhaps the Welsh outside-right had an early infatuation with the letter 'm'. Christened Morton Meredith Morgan and known as 'Monty', he was born in Mountain Ash and first signed for Manchester United in 1932. However, he was unable to break into the first team at Old Trafford and then broke the alphabetic mould by returning closer to home for a brief spell with Swansea Town in 1933.
He then made the move to Devon in 1934, but initially to Torquay United, where he played 133 times and scored 26 goals over the following three seasons. It was from Plainmoor that he was brought to Home Park in 1937 by Bob Jack. He played just 11 games on either flank before moving on to Bristol City the following year, playing just twice, after which records show no further League appearances or clubs.
