I have an assessment and the task is "Working?

I have an assessment and the task is "Working the ball out of the back left hand corner of defence" - I have a mixed ability group of male and female players including a goalkeeper and have to train them for a one hour session including warm up skills sessions and game related play including progression. Does anyone have any ideas? At presnt I am thinking about focusing on positional play and perhaps doing a bit on possessional play/posting up before the game play situation...any thoughts?

If you look at the most read questions on the answer section you may get some more ideas. Bram

I had this same topic for my assessment. You should be able to start with a simple passing drill, progress to a drill combining short and long passes to give players confidence in weighting the pass correctly, followed by one or two more pitch related drills to actually work through the mechanics and options for playing the ball effectively from back left. Throw in some opposition to make the defenders work once they have tried unopposed.
