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.

Full Name: Martin Llewellyn Pilot
Came from: Ebbw Vale Went to: Ebbw Vale
First game: 27 April 1904 Last game: 27 April 1904
Appearances: 1 (1/0) Goals: 0
Born in 1881 in Newtown near Ebbw Vale, Pilot made a single appearance during Argyle's first season as a professional club, whilst on trial from South Wales League side Ebbw Vale FC.
A full-back, his only game for Argyle was a home Western League match against West Ham United. Local media at the time reported that his first action was a miskick which nearly led to a goal for the the Hammers, but he soon settled and regularly thwarted the West Ham attack. A match report said “when the Hammers attack got going, Pilot was there to pull them back” and "he created a favourable impression”. The Western Evening said “he well knows the game and how to play it, using his head as well as his feet. He kicked with judgement, feeding his forwards with accuracy. Pilot should prove an acquisition to the Plymouth Combination".
Quite what then happened is unclear, but a transfer never materialised.
