Jeepers Keepers

The Rules

Split the squad into two teams of four players plus four neutral goalkeepers.

Play the games for five minutes and then rotate the neutral keepers. The team in possession can shoot at any goal.

On scoring a goal or making a save, the keeper then serves the ball to the opposite team who cannot shoot back at the same goal.

Keep a tally of the team or individual keepers who have the most clean sheets.
