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 had 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.
Thanks to Dave Rowntree for many of the player images after 1984.

A product of the Argyle youth set-up, Phillips became Argyle's youngest ever player when he made his debut at just 16 years old. He made 61 appearances during his 5 seasons at Home Park, although most of these were as a substitute, and he never quite lived up to his potential. His only goal for Argyle came during the famous 'Jimmy Glass' game at Carlisle United. After suffering a broken leg he could not get back into the first team and joined Weymouth on loan, a move made permanent two months later. He stayed at Weymouth for four seasons, with a loan spell at Newport County halfway through this period, and had an impressive goalscoring record. In 2005 he was sold to Exeter City and scored 26 goals in just over two seasons there, but despite his good form, fell out of favour and moved to Torquay United. After a year at Plainmoor he joined Rushden & Diamonds before returning to Weymouth on a short-term deal and then moving on to Cambridge United.
