How to play

The outside player passes ball to the middle player and follows his pass to become the new middle player.

The middle player can 1-touch the ball to any outside player, then take up a position on the outside of the circle (close to where he passed).

Coaching points

Properly weighted one-touch pass.

Eye contact with the receiver before passing.

Organisation

Set Up: 40x40 yard area

Split the group into 4 and start them in each corner.

Place two goals in diagonally opposite corners.

How to play

Pass in sequence - 1>2>3

FB (1) will pass into the LW (2) player on the half turn, who will protect and turn with the outside of the left foot, then protect on thr right side before turning to pass wide with the right foot into the run of the 9/10 (3) who will shoot 1st time from the centre of the goal from between 15-20 yards.

Progressions

1. 2 can receive, protect, fake, and spin the opposite way to the touchline and cut back for 3.

2. 1 can overlap 2, who will turn inside then play a reverse pass to cut back for 3.

3. 2 can spin and shoot, 3 will look for the rebound.

4. Add in a recovering defender to track 3.

Coaching Points

Make communication with each player before the 1st pass, and before the receive.

Receive on the half turn, knees bent.

1st touch should set up the next pass.

Pass should be into the stride of the shooter.
