Half-back who was convinced to take a shot at VFL football after starring for a Bendigo representative team against a Victorian side in 1927. He comfortably beat Austin Robinson, one of the best players of his era, and Melbourne eventually won the race for his signature against competition from Carlton and Hawthorn.

Denied a clearance to Carlton before the 1932 season, Murray played out the year. He applied for an open clearance before the next season and was refused, remaining at Melbourne and winning a spot in the VIctorian side but missing six weeks through injury.

Murray was cleared to Preston in July 1934.

He retired from playing at the end of 1937 and coached Preston the next year but did not complete the season in charge. Returned to play in 1940. Also played in the Police League as a serving officer, and in 1944 he was stabbed by a soldier when attempting to rescue a woman. He suffered wounds in the hand, the left shoulder penetrating the lung and in the neck. He was admitted to hospital in a critical condition.
