Does anyone have any good corner set pieces?

Does anyone have any good corner set pieces for 7 a side U11 team (short or long). Have a tournament coming up most games finish 0-0. i think if we can get a goal or two from corners it will be enough to get us close to winning. Thanks Dean

Hi Dean,

I coach a couple of teams at under 10's level & we have trained the boys to use signal's when taking corners. That way the boys in the box know what to expect for example front post, Back post, come short for a pass & come short to lay off corner taker for a shot. We score alot from corners and free kicks by simply catching the opposition sleeping.

Also got one where all attacking players stand outside the box together as a group & when taker gives signal they each attack different areas of the penalty box eg keeper, front post, back post. the point behind this is that it's harder to mark players when on the move.

Give these a try & you can let me know if they worked with your lad's

Take Care

Hi Dean,

Here's a simple set piece I saw BHAFC use earlier this season, thought it might be of help so posting it here. Something different to try anyway?

Brighton and Hove Albion's Corner Technique (attached below)

All the best,

Brighton and Hove Albions Corner Technique


Description:

In this move players vary from the standard one-two then cross with the corner taker performing a looping run around their team-mate to receive the return pass.

After receiving the ball in this position the corner kick taker has a better angle from which to cross the ball into the box - with the added bonus that their cross will also be aiming goal-bound.


Coaching Points:

A little while ago Brighton and Hove Albion used this corner against Charlton to take the lead - Gary Dicker crossing for Inigo Calderon to slot past Addicks keeper Rob Elliot.

Not only is it great for catching the opposition off guard but it's also a clever way for younger players to get their balls into the penalty area if they are usually unable to kick that far.
