📗FOCUS OF SESSION

Work on combinations & player movements to play out from the back under pressure


📗WHAT TO COACH

*Encourage players not on the ball to offer options – Make sure the players around the ball carrier are in good space & positions so the ball carrier always has an option to pass to


*Body shape of players - Make sure players have an open stance so they can play the ball forward when they receive it. If a player faces directly back to where the ball is coming from they are easy to read & shut down plus they need to take an extra touch to face forward.


*One touch passing - If possible, use a few quick one touch passes to play around/through the opposition so they don’t have time to shut down the ball carrier.


📗THE DRILL

PLAYERS: 9

Set up a 40v30 yard pitch. 9 players in a 6v3 set up. The two fullbacks work up & down the line creating angles.


The back 4 plus a midfielder must play their way out & get the ball to the teammate on the other touch line. Once this is achieved, play back the other way.

Fullbacks & other teammates should always look to provide a passing option.

If opposition win the ball, quickly reset & start from the end player.


Happy Coaching!

Chris King.
