Skill Training (25 mins)

Play 4v4 and a wide man in each channel. If odd numbers play with Joker. Set up pitch as shown. Adjust pitch size to depending on numbers.

The blue and white team play posession in central midfield area and when the opportunity presents itself, the ball is played out to either of the wide men (orange players) in the channel. (killer pass opportunity??). The team that manages to play the ball out are the attackers and the other team must defend the big goal.

Wide player runs at pace to the goal line (unchallenged) and looks to either drive a cross hard and low to the edge of the six yard box or pulls it back to the incoming forward, Players are only allowed into the penalty box square after the ball has been played out wide.

Opposite wide player should also look to get into the far post in case the ball reached him.

Swap wide players regularly.

Coaching Points:

Don't miss the opportunity to switch play

Wide man to attack at pace with correct technique to the line

Wide man to get head up to decide whether to drive ball accross six yard box or pull it back

Attackers make sure someone sits out a bit for the pullback

Time your run so you attack the cross

THE DRIVEN CROSS: pays the highest dividends when the flank player has outpaced the defence and reached the goal-line while the defenders are recovering at speed but have yet to reach the six-yard line.

THE PULL-BACK: The best time to use the pull-back is when defenders have recovered into the six-yard box but there is space available betwenn the six-yard line and t he edge of the penalty-area.

Skill Game:

Keep the channels and the wide-men (they play for both teams and are the only ones allowed in the channels). Take away the penalty area square and have a goal at each end. Encourage players to switch ball to wide men and observe if correct decisions are being made at end of run.

Last 20 minutes remove wide channels and let them play.
