Usain Bolt scores two goals for Central Coast Mariners in trial game

SYDNEY AUSTRALIA- OCTOBER 12 Usain Bolt of the Mariners celebrates scoring a goal during the pre-season friendly match between the Central Coast Mariners and Macarthur South West United at Campbelltown Sports Stadium

Usain Bolt scored twice in his second trial match for the A-League's Central Coast Mariners to boost his chances of realising his dream of becoming a professional footballer.

Bolt, who has also had training sessions with Borussia Dortmund, Mamelodi Sundowns and Stromsgodset, was given his first start for Central Coast Mariners for the friendly against Macarthur South West United on Friday.

Bolt is a Manchester United, and while things are not going well for the Premier League club now, they aren't quite bad enough to justify handing him a contract, or even a trial.

In their final game before competitive football returns in Australia, Central Coast smashed their amateur counterparts 4-0. His first goal, though, indicated some promise as he displayed strength to shrug off one defender before showing poise in front of goal to finish with a low left-footed shot.

If the keeper was disappointed to let in Bolt's first strike, the second goal was embarrassing for him and his centre-back.

Bolt was denied the chance of a hat-trick when coach Mike Mulvey hooked him with just over 10 minutes to go.

'I'm happy I could come here and show the world I'm improving.

Bolt made a promising start and was chased down as he looked to race through on goal in the opening few minutes, before he played a role in the opener.

While the Mariners have claimed it is not a publicity stunt and that Bolt could possibly earn a contract at the New South Wales club, their marketing of his appearance suggests otherwise.
