Possesion in a 2-4-1 (20 mins)

Set-Up

25X25 yard grid as shown

Organization

3V2 with 4 neutals (yellow) and 2 targets (one red and one green). Play begins with the CB at the bottom of the screen dribbling into the field. He is playing for white to begin with. The aim is for the 3v2 in the middle to get the ball to the far green target (this player represents the #9). Player can use their outside players to help control the play. They can not be defended but are limited to two touch. The red and the green player represent a backwards option to the keeper if there is no option forward (as well as the target). Outside players can play to keeper and keeper can play to the outside, however the only way for a point to be scored is if the middle players can play to the their center forward. Center backs are only in when they have possession. When they dont they can prevent the ball gettting to the target. Targets are encouraged to receive the ball in and onside position (checking into the field to get the ball ahead of the defender.)

Coaching Points

Speed of play, angles of support, movement out wide to create space for through balls. Patience when in possession.
