He is a member of the Junior Under 20 Men's Great Britain Team and competes in the under 90kg category and currently ranked 3rd in the country.
After spending majority of the 2007 year out with injury, it was not until mid 2008 where he was back to full competitive fitness.
Frankie's first major competition back was the UK School Games held in Bath and Bristol where he represented England gaining a bronze medal at this event.
Other events he competed at include:
- October 2008: Flanders Cup, Senior Comp (Belgium) - Bronze
- October 2008: National Age Banded Championships - Bronze
- January 2009: Under 20 Junior Great Britain Team Trials - Bronze
- February 2009: Midland Under 20 Ranking Event - Bronze
The Bronze medal at the Midland Under 20 ranking event kept Frankie's impressive 3rd place ranking, however during the 2009 year he hopes to improve on this ranking.
