Bolt named in Mariners squad for Wollongong friendly

Usain Bolt could make his second appearance in a Central Coast shirt after being named in the Mariners' squad for Friday's friendly against NSW NPL side Wollongong Wolves.

The Mariners had been coy on whether Bolt would feature against the Wolves but seemed to have confirmed his appearance in a social media post.

If Bolt does feature against Wollongong, it would be the second match of his trial with the club after debuting in front of almost 10,000 fans at Central Coast Stadium in August.

The eight-time Olympic gold medalist is on an indefinite trial with the Hyundai A-League club, hoping to earn his first professional football deal.

Bolt will again wear the number 95 jersey for  the clash at WIN Stadium, which kicks off at 7.30pm.

He's not the only high profile name in the Mariners squad, with new recruits Tommy Oar and Ross McCormack in line to make their first appearances for the club.
