Passing and support play
THIRD MAN RUNNING
“Accuracy is important” • “Good first touch” • “Look where you are passing” • “Move to receive the pass”
Use half your 9v9 pitch. You need three players – one starting near the halfway line (A) and two others (B and C) further into the half on either side of player A.
The session starts with A passing the ball to either B or C and running around the outside of that player – this is a “third-man run”.
The receiving player passes to the other player first time and then runs around the back of the player.
After a minimum of three passes, the player with the ball crosses to the far post where the other players are making an attacking run.
This is a constant pass and run to get around the outside of the player with the ball. A great way to warm up before a match.
How many players do I need?
Each set up uses three players.
