EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS SOCCER COACHES

Quick interplay to goal

The aim of this session is to get players working quickly in the areas in front of goal to spot openings and quickly attack them with the end result a shot at goal.

Why use it

This session gives a finishing touch to great possession and penetrative movement.

Set up

You need balls, bibs and cones using half your normal pitch. We used 12 players in the session.

How to do it

I like to complete training with a finishing practice so that players can leave feeling confident, so we have three players in a group, with three different scenarios ending with one shot at goal each

Technique

Good passing and quick movement with a good shot to finish.

Fast play to goal

THE THREE SCENARIOS

    1. The ball is served into the target man by the coach, played back to the second striker who feeds it through for a third man run and finish
    2. The ball is played into the target man who lays it off for the second striker to take a touch and finish
    3. The ball is played into the target man who receives, turns and finishes

EXTRAS

    4. You can use cones instead of mannequins to represent defenders
    5. You can switch players around and with the players you have place real defenders in to progress it to match day realism
