Positional Practice (20 mins)

Reds set up:

Two Centre Midfielders

One Attacking Midfielder Centre

One Attacking Midfielder Right

One Striker


Blues set up:

Two Defenders

Three Midfielders


Two Common Players:

When reds have ball - common players are right back and attacking left midfielder.

When blues have ball - just common players



Reds to work the ball forward and end up with a shot

Blues to win the ball back and make 6 passes



Stay in Zones to Start With

If Red AMR is wide on touchline, DR common player must stay back - if he comes inside, common player can advance


Coaching Points - Aiming to get the AMR to move inside to create a 2v1 against opposition holding midfielder - allows DR to advance into the space out wide to give team width:

-When CM has good possession and can play forward - AMR can move inside off the line to receive a pass - then link up with AMC and ST and DR who is advancing

-Can also choose to stay wide and receive on the touchline and move inside - if staying wide then defender right must stay deep and provide support
