Drill (30 mins)

Drill

.

Set up using one half of the pitch. In 11 a side game Reds would be playing a 4-4-2 formation. In this drill they are playing without full backs.

.

Option 1 - Left Side of Pitch

Centre Back plays a bounce pass with Centre Midfielder. Pass is then played into the Strikers feet. The Winger moves off his line and infront of the Striker to receive a lay off pass. Option then of Shooting First Time or Driving Into the Box and Shooting.

.

Coaching Points:

-Quality of Passes needs to be high so that the drill flows smoothly and is realistic.

-Winger makes double movement - first movement away up the line to throw off a potential defender, second movement back inside to receive infront of Striker.

-Strikers movement before pass is made to him, double movement away from the Cb and then check back towards

-Strikers movement after Lay Off is away from goal, always looking at the ball with open body position potentially to receive a pass if the CB stays central

.

.

Option 2 - Right Side of Pitch

Centre Back plays straight into Strikers feet, who sets the ball back to the Centre Midfielder. Centre Midfielder then plays a through pass for the Winger to move on too and Cross. Striker gets into the box.

.

Coaching Points:

-Centre Midfielder needs double movement towards CB to draw opposition midfielder in, then check back quickly to receive the set back from the Striker

-Striker needs double movement away from CB then back towards in time with the pass

-Winger needs double movement, towards CB/CM and then spin away up the line for the pass

-Striker gets into the box and attacks the cross
