Lead in session (20 mins)

Set up as shown above.

3 zoned crossing areas on each side of the field.

Allow attacking team to cross from each zone in turn, deep cross from full back, whipped cross from zone 2 and then driven or stood up cross from baseline. Coach the area to out the ball into (prime target area, yellow zone) and the technique to produce the cross.

Coach combinations between full backs and wide midfielders, i.e lay off, overlaps and combinations with central midfield players for through balls to cross.

Move onto movement of strikers and areas for them to attack and the types of finish, i.e first time finish, head, two touch finish etc.

Work then with the supporting players of the number 8 supporting the edge of the box and the other wide player supporting around the back for any overhit cross.
