Stage 1

Mark out a diamond with cones, be sure to put 2 cones at each point for next stage of drill.

Player A starts with ball, he rolls ball out his feet and plays a pass to his team mate to his right. His teammate should make a short, sharp movement off cone to recieve the ball. He takes 1st touch and passes to his teammate on his right and so on. As ball comes back to where drill started Player B steps in and recieves pass and he alternates with A each time the ball goes round.

Stage 2

Fundamentals of drill are the same. Only change is use the 2nd cone and create a gate of 3 yards directly behind where original cone was. Player A starts on outside of diamond all other 4 teamates position themselves next to cone in the middle of the diamond. Player B when instructed by Player A, makes movement between cones. Player A passes the ball through the gate to B. Once the ball is passed Player A makes his way into the middle of the diamond with the rest of his teammates. Once Player B recieves the ball the next player in line moves between the cones to recieve a pass through the gates and this repeats/
