Shadow Play Attacking & Defensive

Shadow play in possession of the ball

Red markers represent opposition in 9 a-side shape 3-4-1

Ball starts with GK who chooses to play out to either defender to start the practise

From this point players are coached to show good support positions and movements in order to retain possession in different scenarios across the pitch in a 2-4-1 shape

In particular guidance will be given to encourage different methods of playing out from the back.

Key Points

Quick movements in to space/Open body position at all times/Where can players rotate positions to get on the ball/Maintaining balance when in possession (Mindful of combating the counter attack)

The same set-up is then used to work on the team's defensive shape. The coach will move with the ball from position to position and the team will react depending on the position of the ball in to a general defensive shape.

Key Points - Who presses/Where do they show/Cover/Balance of surrounding players/Shape of the rest of the team
