Career[edit]

North Queensland Fury[edit]

Usai joined up with the North Queensland A-League outfit during the 2010-11 season as an injury replacement player.[2] He made his professional debut in the Hyundai A-League on 8 January 2011, in a round 22 clash against Newcastle Jets in a 3–1 loss.[3] After the Fury folded at the end of the season Usai headed to England in search of trials.[4]

Blackburn Rovers[edit]

In August, just before Usai was going to return home, he was contacted by Gary Bowyer and after impressing in a trial he signed a deal to the end of the season with an option for a second year.[4]

On 13 May 2012, Usai sat on the bench during Rovers 2–1 defeat by Chelsea in their final match of the 2011–12 Premier League season.[5] His call up to the first team was due to both Paul Robinson and Mark Bunn being injured.[6] He left the club on August 8, 2013 after mutually agreeing termination of his contract.[7]

Cowdenbeath[edit]

On 31 January 2014, Usai moved from AFC United to Cowdenbeath.[8]
