Bolt scores twice for Central Coast Mariners

Usain Bolt scored twice on his first start for Central Coast Mariners and must now wait to see if he has done enough to earn a deal with the A-League club.

The eight-time Olympic champion was named in the Mariners’ starting line-up against Macarthur South West United on Friday, with Mike Mulvey’s men running out comfortable winners.

With the Mariners’ league season beginning a week on Sunday against Brisbane Roar, it remains to be seen if Bolt will be offered a permanent deal ahead of the competitive fixtures beginning.

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.

The 32-year-old doubled his tally with a simple 69th minute tap-in and was substituted six minutes later, having boosted his hopes of earning a prolonged stay with the Mariners.
