Angles of Support (25 mins)

Play starts in one box which is a 4v2 situation for red. There are three reds on the outside and two in the middle. Two blues are in either box. Only red can enter the middle channel. We are looking for speed of play and ways for the red to use their positioning to create angles to connect passes. When the ball is transferred over to the other sid the two full backs must shift across to support. The pass to one of the three players on the outside must come from the central channel. The player in the channel has a two touch limit. Play restarts from the other side straight away with the two working red players switching positions.

Penatrating Passes (25 mins)

Play a 7v7+1 game with goalkeepers. Three defenders, two midfielders in the central zone and one neutral upfront. There are two free zones on the left and right side of the central channel. For the players not in possession, they should be looking to close down the passing angles and recover the ball. The two full backs are encouraged to break forward when play is shifting down their side of the field. One of the midfielders can also break forward to force the defenders into a 1v1 situation.
