Football Drill Demonstration
Set up as shown with 2 cones (the disatance of which between can be modified depending on ability or challenge you want to set your players).
1 player on each cone and 2 players in the middle, 1 ball between the 4.
Play begins with a pass from the outside into the middle. The middle players combine to get the ball out to the other side.
The player who passes the ball out follows their pass and gets on the outside.
The player on the outside who receives the pass from the middle has 2 choices:
1 - rwtb into the area, turn and pass
2 - pass into the other player in the middle before getting the ball back and passing to the outside player on the other side
Ideally get your players playing with 1 and 2 touches.
Demand firm accurate passes to help improve the players first touches.
If the external player receiving chooses option 1 then as soon as they turn this is a trigger for the 2nd player in the middle to drop off, make more space to receive the ball.
If option 2 is taken then the other player in the middle should look to play with 1 touch, laying the ball off in the path of his partner.
