Usain Bolt wants Mariners stay after two-goal display

Usain Bolt will get the chance to show he belongs in the A League when he starts for the Mariners on Friday night

Olympic Champion and World Record holder Usain Bolt almost scored a hat-trick on his Central Coast Mariners debut start against Campbelltown.

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.

His second came in slightly more fortuitous circumstances as a defensive mixup between keeper and defender saw the ball fall to Bolt, who rolled the ball home into an empty net.

Bolt made his first appearance for the Mariners on August 31 and then played an entire second half on September 19 against North Shore Mariners, where he alternated between left wing and forward position.

"It was my first proper game and I'm just happy I got a chance", Bolt said. "I'm keen to be a Mariner, and get into the team".

"The couple of games that I played, I didn't play with the first team. I've just got to continue learning and getting better". "I think my running off the ball is where I've improved most".

"After this game is where we can talk because the season's coming up", Bolt said Friday, looking to the October 21 regular season opener.

"'I think we're all in agreement that we'll look about January", Mulvey said.

Bolt retired from the athletics track following the 2017 world championships in London, where he pulled up with a hamstring injury.

Previously, the Jamaican trained with Borussia Dortmund as well as clubs in Norway and South Africa.

McCormack, who is now on a season-long loan at the A-League club from Championship side Aston Villa, turned out for the Whites between 2010 and 2014, scoring 53 times in 140 appearances.

He's dazzled in front of the cauldrons of Beijing, London and Rio de Janeiro but a suburban football ground in Sydney's outer suburbs could be the scene of the final chapter of Usain Bolt's sporting career.

A glorious opportunity came and went for Bolt just before the interval as he headed wide from Oar's searching cross, with Murray showing him how it should be done soon after.
