Usain Bolt's proposed A-League trial will go ahead - but only if Football Federation Australia agrees to contribute around $900,000 from its marquee fund should the Jamaican sprint king prove worthy of a contract.

Mariners chief executive Shaun Mielekamp was excited about the prospect of Bolt playing in the A-League at Central Coast Stadium.
His trial would be similar to the one Jarryd Hayne underwent before earning a contract to play American Football.
