USAIN BOLT has scored his first goals in professional football as he bids to win a contract at Central Coast Mariners.

The sprinter netted two goals for the Australian side in a friendly against McArthur South West United, one of which was from an assist by former Scotland international Ross McCormack.

Ex-Rangers and Motherwell attacker McCormack, on loan from Aston Villa, played a ball forward for Bolt to chase down.

Naturally, the Jamaican track legend outpaced the defender before slotting a finish past the goalkeeper and celebrating in trademark fashion.

Bolt had squandered a couple of chances throughout the match, but later he capitalised on a mix-up between defender and goalkeeper to walk-in an easy second.

The multiple Olympic gold medallist is hoping to impress enough to secure a professional contract at the club and fulfil his dreams of being a footballer.

Bolt told Fox Sports: “My first start and scoring two goals, it’s a good feeling. I’m happy I could come here and show the world I’m improving.”

McCormack said: “”The best thing about Usain is he’s so humble. He’s fitted in well with the lads. From my first day even to where he is now, the transformation is huge”
