The club will play a pre-season friendly tomorrow against an amateur side and Bolt is expected to get his first taste of a competitive game, but only as a substitute.

“I imagine he’ll get some minutes on Friday,” said club coach Mike Mulvey.

“The things we are asking him to do are things that he hasn’t done for quite some years.

“He has played football as an athlete in between athletic meets so he has rudimentary skills. There’s no problem about that. It’s about being able to do it at the speed that we do it. It takes time to adjust,” he added.
