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.

Came from: Manchester City Went to: Huddersfield Town
First game: 01 September 1909 Last game: 26 March 1910
Appearances: 25 (25/0) Goals: 3
Wood began his career with London-based team Southern United before joining Derby County in 1905. He spent two years with the club and made 37 appearances, scoring 7 goals. In 1907 he moved to Manchester City and played 28 games, scoring 6 times, over the following two seasons. He was also chosen at this time for the North v South representative match.
In May 1909 Wood signed for Argyle and "a good deal of importance" was assigned to his capture by the club handbook. A forward whose favoured position was inside-right, he could also play at inside-left and was a regular member of the first team during his first six months at Home Park. However, he struggled to find the net and eventually lost his place in the second half of the season. Prior to the beginning of the 1910-11 campaign he moved to Huddersfield Town, and in his only season at Leeds Road he made just 10 appearances before moving on to Aberdeen. Wood spent three years with the Dons, scoring 16 goals in 61 games, before retiring.
