Farrage started his football career with Newcastle Junior club Walker Celtic. He joined First Division Birmingham in November 1937. After making his debut for them on 7th September 1938 in a 2-1 home win over Leicester City, he went on to score twice in seven appearances for them in that season. He had scored one more goal and played in the three games of the aborted 1939-40 season, which was brought to an end by the Second World War, before his promising career was curtailed. He made guest appearances for several clubs including Luton Town, where he scored once in five appearances in 1940-41 and Middlesbrough, in the 1942-43 season, where he played once, without scoring, and also with Leeds United. At Leeds he made his debut at outside-left in the 1940-41 North Regional League Xmas Day 2-1 win over Bradford Park Avenue at Elland Road and also played in the next game in a 1-2 home defeat by Chesterfield.

During the War he served as a Private with the 10th Battalion of the Parachute Regiment and he was killed in action at Arnhem on 23rd September 1944. He was only twenty-six.
