Long Indirect (15 mins)

Wide run

The touch and overlap play is designed to keep possession of the ball and create a 2 v 1 play resulting in a shot on goal or a cross into the dangerous area of the goal. Player A gives a short 1 yard touch to Player B and then makes an overlapping run around Player B. Player B dribbles at pace at defender and looks to dribble in behind defender or pass down the line to Player A. If the pass is made, then Player A will cross the ball into the dangerous area of the goal. If Player B gets in behind the defender, then he can shoot on target or combine with one of the players on top of the 18 yard box or play the ball wide to the right side.

Long Indirect 2 defenders (15 mins)

Long into target with lay off

If 2 defenders are brought to defend against the touch and overlap, a target player (T) can be placed on the corner of the 18 yard box. Player B splits the 2 defenders to the target player. Target player can turn and shoot, play the ball wide to overlapping player A or lay off to Player B who then shoots on frame.

Emphasis

Target Player T must be isolated with no other attacking players around so that we don't attrack additional defenders. This play can be executed anywhere on the attacking half.
