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.

Scotsman Dougall started his career at Burnley before the start of World War Two. During the war he played as a guest for Oldham Athletic, Watford, Walsall and Coventry City and also played for Scotland in unofficial wartime internationals. He failed to break into the first team after returning to Turf Moor, and joined Birmingham City, where he won his one and only full Scottish cap in 1946. He spent three years at St Andrews before dropping down a division to join Argyle in 1949. After a difficult first season at Home Park, Dougall settled into the right-half position where his speed and intelligent use of the ball was at its most effective. Right-half was his best position, but it was Dougall's versatility that made him such a popular figure with the manager and supporters. After a spell as player-coach and chief-coach, where he shared managerial duties with George Taylor, he was named Argyle manager in 1961. By his own admission he was not cut out for management and soon returned to coaching and scouting, working for the club until the early 1970s.
