Percy Franks played his earliest football with other Wests notables in the Ashfield District. No residential address has been found for him in this locality when he was playing football, so it is likely that he was living with relatives or perhaps boarding at the time.

The earliest residential location for him is at Pennant Hills in 1913, after his time playing football and where many of the Franks relatives lived.

Percy played First Grade for Wests in 1908, 1909 and 1911 notching up a total of sixteen First Grade games.  It is likely that he also played a number of lower grade games during this period.
