Description

Looking for patient build up play through midfield before going forward, if at any time the opposition win back possession, look for the quick counter.

Looking for midfielders to break forward to support C/F and wingers, also understanding if the Centre back breaks forward, one of the midfielder fills in for him.

Looking for Centre forwards touch and link up play, looking for end product. If centre backs win possession at any time, look to pass into spare midfielder in middle zone.

As a server, look to play quick into middle zone, so works on midfielders recovery runs as well.

Counter attack (15 mins)

Pitch size - 70 yards by 50

Middle section - 30 x 30

3v3 with 1 floater in middle section

1 attacker v 1 defender at either end of middle zone.

2 goalkeepers

Rules

Red Team starting need to make at least 3 passes before they play into C/F. They can use floater or come out and use centre half for a wall pass. Once the ball goes into centre forward, 2 midfielders can join in and look to score, only 1 defender is allowed to track back in.

If the blue team win the ball back at any time , they can counter attack straight away.

When the play/attack finishes, feed into other team in middle zone.

Counter attack using wide men (15 mins)

Progression

2 wide players playing for both teams.

Continue with the rules that a team who recieves ball first must make 3 passes before either going forward or now wide. They can also use wide players as a wall pass. Once the 3 passes have been achieved, if the ball goes wide looking for winger to take ball down the line and cross into box.

Players can still use centre half's to play with, but if there's space for centre back to drive in to, one of the midfielders must fill in for him until its safe to change other.

Still looking for quick counter if team wins possession back at any time.

Counter attack with full backs (15 mins)

Progression

Now you can add full backs out wide for red team, and 2 tucked in players for blue team(must stay in zone until red full back has had first touch).

The idea is to still keep ball for 3 passes before going into C/F or full back, midfielders can create an overload out wide by over lapping or running inside to recieve. Still looking for 2 midfielders to join in the attack with one sitting, the blue team can now allow midfielders to track back. Once play os finished, blue and red teams reverse roles, with red full backs tucking in and blue players going wide.

Still encourage centre backs to look to drive in to zone when on, over laps and support play.
