Kilpatrick spent just one season - 1995 - in the SANFL with West Adelaide, but it was a highly memorable one as he tied for first place in the Magarey Medal with Garry McIntosh of Norwood. Prior to his stint with West he had played under 19 football for North Melbourne, followed by 26 senior AFL games with Essendon between 1992 and 1994. In 1996 he returned to the AFL with Geelong where, after a difficult start, he developed into a key member of the side and one of its highest possession winners, playing a total of 126 games in seven seasons.
