A medical student at Melbourne University, Langley joined Melbourne in 1900 and despite still playing school football for Caulfield during the year played in a premiership in his first season. The next year he topped the goalkicking.

In 1902 he played for Trinity College in a collegiate match, as well as adding 16 games to his senior tally.

Langley was made captain in 1905 but he missed the second half of the season with a knee injury, and after the side finished last and he was replaced by Arthur Sowden.

Though primarily a defender by trade, Langley kicked most of his goals while being rested in the forward line.

After his football career had ended and he'd moved into medical practice, Langley was a notable cricketer in the Dandenong district.
