Set up & organization

Use a 20x25yrd pitch with a clearly marked half way line. Two goals with GK’s

Instructions

Players are split up into a 2v2 on one half and a 1v1 in the other and can only stay in their respective half’s. One team defends with 2 players the other attacks with 2 players and there is one neutral player who always plays on attack and can float in either half. Play starts with the GK. The blue team must try use the extra man to build play into their forward and create an overload; if the yellow team win the ball they can do the same. Switch sides often so players can play with different scenarios and problems.

Coaching points

Players must look to use the extra man whenever possible

This is a fast tempo game and players must look to move the ball quickly in transition

Width and depth and create passing angles and triangles

Positive attacking mentality. Shoot whenever possible.
