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.

Born in Pirton in Hertfordshire, Titmuss began his football career with hometown Pirton United in the Luton Alliance and then Hitchin Town before the outbreak of the First World War, during which he served with the Lancashire Fusiliers. He was spotted playing for an Army representative side by Southampton stalwart Bert Lee, and when the War ended he was invited for a trial with the club. It was to prove a prudent move; in seven years at The Dell he made over 200 appearances and also won two full England caps, both against Wales.
After eventually losing his regular place with The Saints he joined Argyle for £1,750 in 1926 and settled well, captaining the Pilgrims to the 1929-30 Third Division (South) title. In all he made 177 appearances at left-back for Argyle but as with his time with the Saints, never managed a goal. He was not the fastest of defenders but was renowned for his positional sense and as a master of the sliding tackle.
His final game for Argyle, in May 1932, saw the club achieve their highest-ever league finish (fourth in Division Two), a record that was equalled in 1953. After retiring he played non-league football for St Austell and later become a licensee in Plymouth and remained living locally until passing away in 1966 at the age of 68.
