Bolt Sock It To Them With A Double

Jamaica’s Olympic legend and superstar Usain Bolt although having hung up his spike from the track is creating a name for himself on the football pitch.

Bolt scored a brace for the Central Coast Mariners in a 4-0 victory over McArthur South West United in a pre-season friendly on Friday, nine days before the Australian A-League begins.

The 32-year-old who started the game hit the back of the net twice by scoring two goals one in the 57th minute of the game and the other in the 68th.

Bolt who made his debut for the club in August says he was delighted with his performance and he hopes he will be offered a contract with the club.

The first game of the season for the Central Coast Mariners will be on October 21 against the Brisbane Roar.

If Bolt signs a deal with the club, he would become the second Jamaican after Wolry Wolfe to play with the club.
