(SOUNDBITE) (English) OLYMPIC SPRINT CHAMPION, USIAN BOLT, SAYING: "I've been working, trying to get fit, get on the level that I can play for 45 minutes.

For me I think I did pretty well and I'm happy at the progress I'm making." 2.

WHITE FLASH 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) OLYMPIC SPRINT CHAMPION, USIAN BOLT, SAYING: "It was brilliant you know.

It takes all the weight off your shoulders, you know what I mean, that first goal, to relax you.

I'd missed one earlier which I wasn't happy with myself but when scoring it was just a great feeling.

I was happy about it and it took a weight off my shoulders." 4.

WHITE FLASH 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) OLYMPIC SPRINT CHAMPION, USIAN BOLT, SAYING: "My position is much better I think.

I'm doing much more, I'm running in space much better.

I think controlling the ball, seeing the field, better vision is my two poorest areas but has improved a lot since I've been here but it could improve a lot more." 6.

WHITE FLASH 7 (SOUNDBITE) (English) OLYMPIC SPRINT CHAMPION, USIAN BOLT, SAYING: "All I can do is just do what I came out here to prove myself.

They've seen me in training, they've seen what I'm capable of so now they need to analyse and say 'alright, is he good enough for this club' and they will determine that.

I just did what I had to do and that's as far as I can go.

STORY: Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt scored two goals in his first start for the Central Coast Mariners in a trial match on Friday (October 12).

The 32-year-old Jamaican, who is hoping to win a contract ahead of the Mariners' 2018-19 A-League campaign, was in the thick of the action as the Mariners recorded a 4-0 win over Macarthur South West United.

He scored his first in the 57th minute when he shrugged off a defender on the left before unleashing a hard, low shot past the goalkeeper at the near post.

Bolt pointed to the sky in his trademark 'lightning bolt' celebration, telling reporters afterwards it was a "great feeling" to score and it has "taken a weight off" his shoulders.

Bolt's last appearance for the first team was against an amateur select side in August, where he came on as a late substitute and appeared to lack match sharpness.
