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.

Oxley was born in Whitwell in Derbyshire and his career started locally with Whitwell Old Boys before coming to the attention of neighbouring Chesterfield, for whom he signed in 1925. In a two-year spell he played 37 times and scored 10 goals for The Spireites. He then moved the short distance to Sheffield United in 1928 and spent five years at Bramall Lane, making 116 appearances and scoring 11 times from either flank or as a centre forward. He then joined the select band of players to have crossed the city divide and in 1933 signed for Sheffield Wednesday, although with 14 appearances his stay was briefer.
Moving to Home Park in 1935, he made 15 appearances at centre-forward or on the right-wing, but did not score for the club. In 1936 he left and moved to Stockport County, where he played 68 times and scored 10 goals across two seasons. He then moved into non-league football and wound down his career with Worksop Town.
