Now we are back playing matches and training after nearly four months of lockdown I can certainly notice the difference in my players. It isn't like when they come back from summer holidays because that is usually just down to a bit of fitness and rusty match play. So how can you relight their fire? MORE
Return to play: Turning skills
Developing a turning game
CREATE SPACE TO TURN
“Make quick decisions” • “Keep control of the ball”
Position three players – A, B and C – in a line 10 yards apart. Start with this simple passing and turning exercise – A passes to B who turns and passes to C.
Then you need a pole for the receiving player to turn around after receiving the ball from A then passing to C – The ball comes back from C to B so the working player is turning both ways around the pole.
Move play on after four turns so B goes to C, C dribbles to A and A becomes the turning player.
How many players do I need?
