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.

John Uzzell's Testimonial

Tuesday, November 25, 1986

Throughout his 12 years at Home Park, John Uzzell ("Uuuuuzzell") was rarely a first team regular, but he still made nearly 300 appearances for the club. A local lad, he joined Argyle as an apprentice and graduated though the youth team and reserves to his first team debut in August 1977. What he lacked in finesse, he more than made up in honesty, hard work and loyalty; probably why many an Argyle fan has a soft spot for Uuuuuzzell, and why Brian Clough was so pleased to offer his side for John's big night..

John played his final game for Argyle at Oldham in April 1989. Not offered a contract that summer, he moved to Plainmoor where he made 92 appearances for the Gulls before retiring in 1992.
