Diamond drills 2 (15 mins)

1/4 pitch area with a diamond set up between half way and penalty box.

Cone goals with a GK.

2 groups of 8 players, each group doing same drill alternately on opposite sides of pitch.

Pattern as shown where winger B moves inside to receive and create space for A to overlap.

B then passes to C who opens up to pass to running A. Meantine striker D times his arced run to combine with A to score with a 1 touch finish.

Rotation : A>B>C>D>queue , also swap groups to experience other side of pitch

*C to keep width and A to maintain wide position when overlapping

*movement of C to check in and out to make space for pass

*timing of runs to meet passes

*movement to retain balance

Diamond drills 2 4v2 (15 mins)

Add 2 defenders from other group X and Y.

X challenges B on receipt as 1st defender - now Bs ability to hold ball and pass under pressure gives A time to overlap.

*Ds run must be tracked by Y - realistic as would push up defensive line.

*Y must be composed and act as 1st defender once X is beaten and is recovering.

*Cs movement is crucial in opening his passing channel

*C remains deeper as B provides initial support for attack

Rotation same as drill but change defenders regularly.

Progress by allowing more freedom for defenders whilst maintaining good principles and re-inforcing offside rule

GRP pattern (15 mins)

Now play 6v4, where the reds are 2x CBs , a FB, and a DM. Start as before but quickly go full width of penalty box.

Condition is that the only route into the penalty box is from the shaded corner.

8 and 10 work together to make the long pass to 2.

11 keeps 'width' to stretch Z.

Reds should be stretched and blues should get plenty of goal chances, but must be aware of running offside.

GRP defending (15 mins)

Initially the defence should step up as the ball is going back to blue 8 (or 10) - this set the offside trap.

*Once the ball is in the corner red CB Y closes down the full back passing on striker to Z.

*W and X both recover to track runs.

*Maintain compactness.

*Do not block GK vision.

*GK communication

Conditioned game (15 mins)

Dependent on numbers player 10 v 7 (ideal) or 9v7, or 10v8.

Remind players of pattern 1, and that either can be used.

Condition is that ball must get into corners to mount an attack.

Blues full backs must stay in wide channels unless defending.

Reds attack attempting to use one of the two patterns to score.

Blues score in cone goals.

All restarts are with reds in centre circle passing to full backs L and R alternately

*maintining width on both sides

*striker movement and timing

*weight and accuracy of passes

Progress by allowing normal free play and remove restart condition.
