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.

Taylor began his career playing for the works football team of the Hall Russell shipyard in Aberdeen. He soon came to the attention of his local League club and spent 10 years at Pittodrie, making over 100 appearances, most of which came after the war. He established himself in the side at half-back and was renowned for his skilful passing and tackling. In 1946 he scored a last-minute winner as Aberdeen defeated Rangers to win the Southern League Cup, the final year before the competition became the Scottish League Cup. The following season he helped Aberdeen win the Scottish Cup, their first major honour, with a win over Hibernian. Moving to Home Park 12 months later, he played for two years before retiring and taking up a post as team trainer. His association with Argyle lasted nearly 20 more years and included a brief spell as co-manager.
