A running defender who could also take a turn on the ball, Frank Langley proved himself a top class player in 89 VFL games with Melbourne between 1900 and 1906. He also represented the VFL. In his debut season he starred on a half forward flank as the Fuchsias overcame the Grand Final challenge of Fitzroy to clinch their first ever VFL pennant. The 61 goals he amassed during his senior career testify to his penchant for resting up forward from where he often provided his team with its primary route to goal.
