He's won a title for his boyhood club, made every representative team imaginable and now Harry McGregor is trying to crack it on the big stage.
The Orange City quick won't be lining up for the defending Bathurst and Orange District Cricket champions in 2022. Instead, he will be playing for the Australian National University Cricket Club in the ACT Premier League.
"My coach in the under 19s program that I'm in is actually from Canberra so he gave me the suggestion," McGregor said.
"I was planning on heading up to Sydney this year, but obviously with COVID that changed my plans. He thought my better option would be to go to Canberra and stick around there for three or four years and see how I go.
"I would say the competition is equivalent to second grade in Sydney, I wouldn't say first grade. But it will be a lot better than around here."
McGregor took 24 wickets with an average of 13.9 in last season's BOIDC competition, but his legacy with Orange City may best be remembered for an unlikely showing with the bat.
I'm better off making the move now and if I really want to give it a crack, it's better off to do it early than later.Harry McGregor
Coming in at 8-165 in last year's grand final, McGregor gritted out a 72-minute, 48-ball one not out which alongside Troy O'Keeffe guided City to premiership glory.
He added now was as good a time as any to shoot for the stars in the hopes of making a career out of cricket.
"I felt that after a couple chats with mum and dad that I'm better off making the move now and if I really want to give it a crack, it's better off to do it early than later. It is a bit daunting because I don't know anyone in Canberra at all," he said.
"You can learn a lot of things not just on the field but off the field as well.
"With the couple of chats I've had with the coaches, they think it's important that I learn as much off the field as on. It's a bit of a life lesson as well as gaining my knowledge and skills in cricket.
"I'll definitely miss Orange. From the people I've spoken to, the first year is always the hardest and if you get through that you'll be alright. I'll definitely get a bit homesick I reckon."
His new season starts on November 6 and he was hopeful of squeezing one or two more games out in the BOIDC before the move.
