Goalkeeper takes possession

Starting Point - D3 plays a misplaced pass from midfield to the GK. The two defensive forwards D6 and D8 run towards the GK as if trying to chase down the ball. The GK then throws out to either full back

Starting Point 2 - As above but the GK kicks or throws out to whoever is in the best position. (free play)

Key Factors -

As The Gk Takes Possession -

Defence stay compact to make safe the central area.

Composure of Goalkeeper - Watch the ball and make sure you have it safely in your hands before looking up to make a quick throw or kick.

Trigger action - As soon as GK has taken firm possession of the ball, this is the signal for the full-backs A2 and A3 to go up and wide and communicate with the Gk for the ball. Wide players A4 and A6 should also move up and wide to make the pitch area big.

A7 or A8 push forward in anticipiation of a kick.
