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.

Born in Doncaster, Tepper started his career with local sides Roman Terrace, Thurnscoe Victoria and Mexborough before signing terms with Chesterfield, for whom he made three Football League appearances at just 17. A winger who could play on either flank, he then moved to Blackpool the following year but no appearances are recorded and it appears he drifted out of the League and signed for ambitious Goldthorpe United. In 1932 he joined Bristol Rovers, but as with Blackpool, no League appearances are recorded, although he did score a hat-trick against a Czech touring side, Sporting Club of Nachod, in 1933. He moved to Home Park later that year, but started just one match for the Pilgrims, a home win against Notts County in April 1934. During that match he was struck hard in the eye by the ball and was a virtual passenger for the remainder of the game and was then unable to be selected for the next match, the season's last. He left Home Park during the close season, still only 21, and returned to the wider Bristol area to sign for Bath City, after which little is know about the remainder of his career.
