Kilmurrary was often used on the half forward flanks but also played as a key position forward and ruck-rover. He was a good exponent of the flick pass and won East Perth's Best and Fairest in 1958, breaking teammate Graham Farmer's sequence of four in a row. That year he also won a Sandover Medal as best player in the competition as voted for by the umpires. He was a three time premiership player with East Perth and represented Western Australia at interstate football on four occasions.[1]

In 2005 Kilmurray was named on the interchange bench in the official Indigenous Team of the Century.
