The match ended 4-0 to the Mariners and the Jamaican will be hoping to continue his form to secure a professional contract with the A-League outfit.

He hopes to sit down with the coaching staff next week to discuss his future.

“My first start and scoring two goals, it's a good feeling,” Bolt said - bizarrely in an interview while the match was still being played.

“I'm happy I could come here and show the world I'm improving. I'm keen to be a Mariner and get into the team.”
