Short corner- Left slip

How do you improve a left slip short corner?

Hi Emily,

The left slip can be a very dangerous play, but is often only effective if the player at the top of the circle really sells it by making it look like they are going to be taking a flick or strike at goal. 

This will draw the first runner towards them and by selling it, will give the left slip a lot more time and space to have a shot at goal. 

The most effective way of doing this is using the trapper to slip the ball rather than the striker/flicker. This way, the striker/flicker can run over the ball and take a fake shot/flick to draw all the attention of the goalkeeper and defenders. As they do this, the trapper can slip the ball left to give the left slip player a free shot at goal.

I hope this helps and you are able to get plenty of practice in so that when it comes to the weekend, you're scoring from every short corner!
