Starts with goal kick, coach puts slight pressure on CB who aims to head far, high and wide over coned area for a point. Goal keeper jogs down for phase 5.


CB retreats to behind the red cones before pressing on for free header behind manakin - again trying to head to same area, coach serves high looping ball for this as if the opposition CB has won the 2nd ball from PHASE 1. 1 point.


As soon as CB heads phase 2 clear he sprints forward and round the manakin and chases wide man who starts on the half way line. Wide man goes when CB rounds manakin and takes a step back in own half. CB must force the player wide and keep in the channel and block the cross, or influence a poor cross to gain a point. (A poor cross defined by any cross that doesnt find the mini goals)

At any time the CB will also not gain a point if the winger can manipulate the ball and manage to go inside CB and cross the red line moving forwards.


Whatever the outcome of phase 3 the CB sprints to the penalty spot, CB must deal with difficult cross running back towards his own goal and clear first time with weaker foot higher than the manakin on the touchline - for a point. Cross will be coming inbetween edge of 6 yard box and pen spot.


Crosser then delivers another ball immediatley low and hard inbetween pen spot and edge of box to the wide man from phase 3 which CB must get out to and intercept with 1 touch and then deliver cross field pass to big goal -2 touch max - 1 goal - 2 on the full. Wide man must start on corner of box and come on and finish first time if CB can not react, or take touch past CB to finish. Wide man can only be live if ball passes line of minigoals.

6 points available.
