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.

The retirement of a young footballer is always a sad event, but it proved to be the making of Paul Boardman. Signed by Peter Shilton in the summer of 1992 after being released by Liverpool and enduring spells in the rough and tumble of the Northern League, Boardman was a natural goalscorer. But sadly for the young Scouser, he was also naturally injury prone. He only managed three appearances in two seasons for The Pilgrims, but did manage a predatory strike against Bournemouth on a home debut that suggested Shilton may have unearthed a gem. However, more injuries were to follow and Boardman's Home Park exit was inevitable when his contract expired in May 1994, an event that led to him hanging up his boots. He went on to enjoy success as a stand-up comedian, but more notably as a presenter for Sky Sports.
