Frank played for local junior club Saltcoats Victoria before turning senior with Celtic in November 1946. After two years on the fringes with the Glasgow club, he signed on a free transfer with United. He was soon a first pick and throughout a Tannadice career which spanned six years, he was a regular in the side and one of the stars of the early post war era, remembered fondly as one of United’s ‘Famous Five’ combination of Quinn, Grant, McKay, Dunsmore and Cruickshank.

Considering he was a winger, Frank achieved a fantastic scoring rate and at the end of the 1952-53 season, he finished as the Club's top scorer. In his final season, he featured in just over half of the league and cup games and he was released in May 1954. He then joined Hamilton Academical.
