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.

Gorman was born in Lochore in Scotland and was brought to Argyle from Edinburgh City by Bob Jack in 1931. At half-back he was the smallest player in the squad at the time, but was a tenacious tackler. Gorman was a modern-day holding midfielder and his fitness and constant harrying of the opposition was a feature of the Argyle team of the 1930s.
The Second World War ended his career after almost nine years at Home Park, although he did come out of retirement to assist the team during the interim Football League (South) season of 1945-46, adding a further 16 appearances to his pre-war tally. After 15 years as a professional with Argyle, he was appointed as assistant trainer to Bill Harper at the start of the 1946-47 season – a position he held into the early 1950s.
