    Would just like to say that I found the manual to be invaluable when it comes to planning my coaching sessions. All the small-sided games are expertly illustrated, making them easy to understand and put into practice on a training night.

    I know my players thoroughly enjoy the games - much better than picking two teams and just having a match!!

    64 Small-Sided Soccer Games is a brilliant book because the coach gets to sit out…the game is the teacher!

    The tactics themselves are very simple - all the strategic work is done within each game, so everything the players face in small-sided games are encountered again on match day. Players defend in small groups, attack in small groups and experience transition. It means they constantly have to make decisions, and most importantly, learn from them.

    Age appropriate sized playing areas are also considered, meaning players can rotate positions during open play. As a result, every move by a player with or without the ball is a moment of quality - every move matters.

    The icing on the cake? These games are genuinely fun!

    So if you want your players to look forward to training every week flick through the pages of this book: there’s a game for every outcome.
