1 V 1 Close Control (10 mins)

*Minimum 4 Players per Drill*

Player A (attacker) dribbles with the ball towards player B (defender), Player B just jockeys intially. The attacker must take on the defender, when the attacker has beaten the defender, player C starts to advance towards the middle of the pitch (same as starting a run into space) Player A then passes to player C and player C takes on B and becomes the new attacker.

After attackers have all had a turn, swap them with the defender

*Development*

After all have had a turn jockeying - allow defender to tackle the attackers. If the attacker is not tackled then carry out same drill as before. If tackled then the new attacker takes a ball and dribbles straight at the defender.

Coaching Points:

Keep ball close

Use different skills on defender

Ensure an accurate pass

Concentrate on good control
