Mid Line Block Progr.

Add in CM and striker for each team. Weak side MF picks up cm who isn't able to turn, only receive back to goal under pressure.

Striker for white team must be in a blocking position for the switch.

Black team to play out using their 4 players, ball must be played down outside channels to team mates to be able to score.

White team positioning most important as ball rolls, NOT pressing towards the ball. Blocking passes. Take advantage when opportunity arises but mid line block is there to protect the forward passes.

- Discipline out of possession to prevent forward passes. Cover options out of the back, meaning we have to concede possession at their extreme end of the field and win it back once a forward pass is attempted or bad pass/touch is made.

- Quality of passes and movement into best zones for black team. Possession whilst white team allows it. Take advantage of the space down the sides quickly if it is allowed.

Progression:

Add two black players at the far (left on diagram) end. If the black team finds the down the side, they become an attacking team towards the goal they played out from, with the player who received the ball (5v3). Attack quickly and score as soon as possible using forward runs and quick play.
