Keys - Central reds are to try and play between and behind, find pockets of space and try to connect the red team through the the box.(Black upon winning the ball will transition to attack and complete the same objective)

Shape - angle and distance of support

Communication

Find the seams - receive side on to play forward

Combine to move ball quickly forward

Dont get dragged to the ball all the time.

Progression - Insist on 2 touch for central players.

Movement and rotation (20 mins)

Organization:

60 x 80 grid (18 to 18 using full width) 4 flags at top and bottom of grid

targets at each flag.

Instructions:

teams look to combine with three MF targets (black in the center to progress ball and keep possession) MF have 1/2/3 touch limit. Targets are not bound to flag - they have movement of about 5-10 yards off flag.

Coaching Points:

Look to switch field through the middle, look to create numbers up through the middle and wide, create space to receive by moving into better position off the ball. Receive open to the field of play. Circulate the MF players to break def pressure.

Progressions:

MF target may join team in possession until possession is lost. If MF can combine with one touch passes prior to joining each player may join attacking team until possession is lost. Create numbers up and play quickly.
