Playing Out (25 mins)

The reds will play out from the GK and try to work the ball through the poles on the outside of the pitch.

The deeper MF player can receive the ball unopposed in the shaded area.

The full backs are encouraged to advance through the shaded area once the MF player takes possession.

If an "out ball" is needed, the reds can play to the 2nd GK who acts as a target player on the halfway line. (The ball MUST hit the keeper on the full).
