Instuctions: Game is played in half a pitch and game start (S) by one of the Blue midfielders play a mishit ball to Goalkeeper. Note that team in Blue must start behind the orange cone.

Scoring:

The 2 teams compete against each other. Red team score in the gates and Blue team score in the big goals, however the Blue team have got to score within 5 passes otherwise play start from the Goalkeeper

PROGRESSIONS:

- Play 6vs4 (+GK). The 6 players attempt to combine to beat the 4 defenders and score in the gates goals with a full width field now.

- Vary the starting positions (i.e. SP1, SP2, SP3) as shown the Diagram 2, simulating early crosses from both sides.

VARIATIONS:

Play 6vs5. Increasing the difficulty level for the team developing the play.

Coaching points:

- Ensure that the outside full back goes wide immediately once the GK has the ball safely under control and with an open body position.

- Defenders should shadow the ball all the way back to the GK from the start point long ball.

- Transition from defense to attack should be fast and positive.

- Discuss a possible early cross (near post or far post?).

- Movement ahead of the ball to support the back players.

- Discuss the possible passing triangles as shown in Diagram 2.

- GK should be proactive throughout. Verbal and stepping up with the play to act as a sweeper as play develops down the field.

Organisation:

Play 75 yards long and full width

Red team in GK-4-1-2-1

Blue team in GK-2-4-1-1

Coaching points:

- Encourage quick transition.

- Discuss the technique and positioning of the throw for the GK (i.e. spear throw, underarm, over arm, feet)

- Developing play team must expand to create space to play out from the back. Outside flanks should step forward into attacking positions.

- Occasionally switch to a back 3 including deep layer dropping in between CBs in the D. Full backs then push higher on the pitch

- Can 10 and deep lyer switch roles and responsabilities

- Full backs need to be offensive to create overload in the midfield zone

- Teammates need to find space for link up play
