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.

A goalkeeper with local league side Oak Villa, Dyer was signed by Argyle and made his debut as an 18-year-old in 1955, in an attempt to fill the void caused by the retirement of Bill Shortt and Les Major. He was on the small side for a first team 'keeper and after two years of struggling to establish himself in the team, moved back into non-league football with Ilfracombe Town.

Peter Dyer played for Crownhill School along with Bernard Barnes, Tom Worth and Gordon Moxham. All four played for Plymouth & Devon Schoolboys in the 1952-53 season. All four were on Argyle's books as youths. On completion of National Service, Peter Dyer, I believe, played for Weymouth.
