Angles of Support (25 mins)

Play starts in one box which is a 4v2 situation for red. There are three reds on the outside and two in the middle. Two blues are in either box. Only red can enter the middle channel. We are looking for speed of play and ways for the red to use their positioning to create angles to connect passes. When the ball is transferred over to the other sid the two full backs must shift across to support. The pass to one of the three players on the outside must come from the central channel. The player in the channel has a two touch limit. Play restarts from the other side straight away with the two working red players switching positions.
