Line up

This will be our formation for the majority of our games at 5 a side.

with the ball there are 3 options for every outfield player and by maintaining shape and composure you should be able to play and keep possession.

without the ball it is important to make the pitch as small as possible so stay compact and keep pushing the play wide.
