Function (15 mins)

Function : - Working with a zonal back 4 - Working with the red team.

Use half a pitch for the function.

mark 4 small zones out for each defenders starting postion ( RB, CB,CB,LB). Use the zones as a gage aswell, defenders can drop as far back as they feel the need to but cant go further forward than the 1st set of red cones this should encourage them not to over commit. one centre midfield player sitting in front of them as a sheild, the other 2 players inside the gates will become central midfield players during the game but during this they are targets for when the reds get in possesion.

make sure the blues play a 3-3 formation with the wingers staying wide to work the back 4.

Reds score a point by getting the balls into the target players or by catching the blues offside. Blues score a point as normal by scoring goal.
