HIS action is slightly unorthodox, but the effectiveness of Clint Moxon's deliveries has earned him a call up to the Bathurst District Cricket Association's representative side to take on Western Zone Premier League heavyweights Dubbo this Sunday.
Since claiming 3-10 off 6.5 overs, four of which were maidens, in his first grade debut for Bathurst City four seasons ago, Moxon has been a model of consistency with the ball.
Over the last three seasons playing first grade in the Bathurst competition, Moxon has taken 40 wickets at an average of 27.85.
So when Bathurst skipper Adam Ryan was looking for a bowler to come into his squad for Sunday's match, he was happy to give Moxon a shot.
Ryan's hoping his action can unsettle a Dubbo side which is aiming for a third consecutive Western Zone crown this season.
"It's fantastic that he can have his shot, so I'm looking forward to that," Ryan said.
"He's just a really consistent bowler who doesn't give you much and just wears you down as a bowler too, he just keeps hitting those good lengths.
"He's got a bit of an unorthodox release, he releases off the same arm as his foot. It's a different action to get used to straight away, so that plays into it as well.
"But it's just his consistency which is the big thing, especially in that 50 overs we can grind out our bowling session and bat really well.
"He wouldn't be the quickest in our side, but he's quick enough."
Moxon's impending Bathurst debut is one of just two changes made to the representative squad which began its latest Western Zone campaign with a three-wicket win against Orange.
Ryan returns after missing that fixture, while young talents Bailey Brien and Ethan Ivory will not make the trip to Dubbo.
It's a trip on which Ryan is hungry to find reward.
While Bathurst played out a remarkable tie with Dubbo in the 2017-18 WZPL grand final, last summer Ryan's side were well beaten by their rivals.
Bathurst mustered just 111 runs against Dubbo, who went on to eclipse that total with four wickets and 17.2 overs up their sleeve.
Bathurst went on to miss the final, while Dubbo made it two consecutive WZPL titles in a row.
"I suppose after what happened last year we have to make sure we don't get complacent. Last year we took the foot off and went through the motions ... hopefully we've learnt from that, we capitalise where we can, and we play our best cricket," Ryan said.

"For a long time they were the benchmark and I suppose they still are in some ways. I just think they'be got a few younger blokes coming through now as opposed to that really solid side they had for a long time ... but they've developed some very potent players."
Ryan admits the Dubbo bowling unit has an advantage given the game will be played on the Victoria Park 1 wicket, but feels there is enough talent and depth within Bathurst's batting order to upset the title holders.
The captain will encourage their shot making and is seeking a healthy run-rate of at least five an over.
"I think we've got enough balance in there that we can just let everyone play their natural game. Obviously they won't be going yee-ha Twenty20 style, but we like to take it to them with a bit of attack," he said.
"We've got a few fellas within the side that can play the big shots, it's just a matter of balancing up that batting list as wickets fall. I think we need to get above 250, so that is what we'll be aiming for."
