Hailing from Dumbarton, a town on the north bank of the Clyde Estuary at the confluence of the Rivers Clyde and Leven, McMurray began his career at local junior side Vale of Leven. He also played for Strathclyde, another successful junior side, before heading to Hull in December 1920 after a short trial.
McMurray signed for the recently reformed Workington AFC in June 1922 and spent a season played for The Reds in the North Eastern League. He then moved to York City in July 1923, another club that had recently reformed and was competing in the Midland League. After a further season back at Workington McMurray returned to the senior leagues, joining New Brighton in September 1925 but his stay on the Wirral only lasted one season and featured only one senior appearance.
McMurray matched his appearance total at New Brighton with his number of marriages that season, betrothing himself to Edith in March 1926. By 1927 he had returned to Hull and in 1928 he began to work and live periodically in South Africa as a bricklayer. He died in South Africa on a date as yet unknown.
