Set Up (10 mins)

Organisation

Create a pitch 80x50 yard and create a central midfield area 30 x 30 yards - heading 20 yards into attacking half.

Divide players into two teams - 9 red and 7 blue.

Red team to play 2-2-3-1; Blue team to play 2-3-2

Place 3 red MFand 3 blue players into MF area.

Red team to be coached.

Aim

Red team seek to score but only by playing the ball through the central MF area.

Instructions

Condition red team that in order to score, the ball must be played through the central MF area. Once ball has exited the central MF area through the furthest side, two Red MF can join the attack, but one red MF player must remain within the central MF area to provide balance and in anticipation of a counter attack.

No Red MF player can leave the central MF area except for the purposes of attacking as above and once possession is lost from that attack, the Red MF must re-enter the central MF area.

To begin with, no other player from the red or blue team may enter the central MF area.

Red team seek to score by playing through MF zone. If the Blue team gain possession, they have 10 seconds in which time to score.

Coaching Points

Red Midfield players to create space for defenders or No.6 or No.8 to pass to them through:

a. 'Go to Show'

b. 'Show to Go'

c. Switch

If insufficient players, consider playing 2v2 in MF area together with a neutral player.

Encourage players to retain possession by returning ball, for instance to a defender/No.6/8, if no other options are available, and playing ball to the other side of the pitch via goalkeeper.
