Moving into space to receive the ball

This session focuses entirely on movement. Starting with a structured movement drill and slowly progressing into more match-like movement patterns.

There's nothing more frustrating when playing, coaching or spectating than watching a player make a penetrating run forwards, only to find that they don't have a single support player to pass the ball to.

This is an issue that teams face over all areas of the pitch and can be corrected by simply teaching players to recognise where the space is and how to run into it and support the player on the ball!
