Darren Frakes had commenced his cricket in the Townsville Junior Cricket Association with Estates-Cluden and later with QIC-Wanderers and on entering the senior ranks played with Wanderers. On transferring to Cairns in 1998 he played for Rovers and in 2000 moved to Brisbane and commenced playing with Northern Suburbs. He was a member of the North Queensland Under 19 team in 1994-95 and has appeared for North Queensland from 1997-98 to 1999-00, and again in 2002-03. In 1998-99 and again in 1999-00 he was a member of the successful Queensland Country team at the National Country Championships, recording a number of quite fine efforts with the bat, often at a time when quick runs were required that would ensure the Queensland team was able to remain in contention for the Shield. In September 2000 he was a member of the Queensland Country Origin team to play City Origin at Warwick, creating a quite favourable impression against his far more experienced opponents. He played QCA grade for Northern Suburbs (First grade 2000-01 to 2001-02) and played in England in 2002, returning to Townsville for the 2002-03 season. Schools: Wulguru State; Townsville State High. His occupation is bank officer and it was a transfer that took him from Townsville to Cairns and now to Brisbane. (Warwick Torrens, Jan 2003)
