Jim Langley - RIP

Former Fulham player Jim Langley has died at the age of 79.

Vital Fulham would like to add their name to the growing list offering condolences to the family of Jim Langley who has died at the age of seventy-nine.

The former Fulham player, who also appeared for Queens Park Rangers, died of a heart attack early last Sunday morning.

To pay respects to the ex-England international a memorial service will be held at 2.15pm on Friday 21 December at Breakspear Crematorium, Breakspear Road, Ruislip, Midddlesex, HA4 7SJ which will be followed by a wake at Hillingdon Borough FC, located adjacent to the crematorium.

If you require any further information or would like to send a tribute, please email Peter Langley on: theplaceforframes@fsmail.net|

Langley was born in Lambeth and joined Fulham in February 1957. He had been converted from playing as a left winger to a full back.

Prior to joining Fulham he played for Yiewsley, Hounslow Town, Uxbridge, Hayes, Brentford, Ruislip, Guildford City and Leeds United.

As a Fulham player he made three international appearances for England. He made 356 times for Fulham scoring 33 times. His Fulham career ended in 1965 when he moved up the road to Queens Park Rangers before becoming the player / manager at Hillingdon.

A club statement has been issued and reads as follows,

"The Club is sad to learn that former Fulham defender Jim Langley passed
away on Sunday 9th December, aged 78. Jim made a total of 356 appearances for Fulham between 1956 and 1965 scoring 33 times.

A flamboyant left back with a wide range of tricks, such as overhead kicks, bicycle kicks, an enormous throw and a superb slide tackle helped make Langley a great favourite with the Fulham crowd.

He appeared in both of Fulham`s FA Cup semi-finals of 1958 and 1962 and his impressive performances for the Club earned him three caps for England. In fact, he did not miss a game from February 1959 to November 1961. He made his international debut in a 4-0 win against Scotland in Glasgow in April 1958.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this time."


RIP - Jim Langley.
