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.

Blott was born in Holloway, London in 1886, and began his career as an amateur with Southend Athletic before joining Southend United. In 1908 he had a brief spell with Bradford Park Avenue before returning to the Shrimpers, moving on again the following year to Manchester United. He spent four years with the Old Trafford club, scoring twice in 19 appearances.
In May 1913 he signed for Argyle and spent three seasons with the club, either side of the war. He also guested for his former club, Southend United, during the conflict. An extremely versatile player, he could play at outside-left, outside-right, inside-left and left-half and was described thus in the club handbook: "At his best he is A1 at Lloyds, whether at half-back or forward. He dribbles and passes beautifully and uses excellent judgement when centreing". In June 1920 he moved on to Newport County and finished his career with a stint at Dartford.
