Pitch size depends on age and ability

Work on a number of attacking options involving the fullback. Show a few variations then allow players to come up with their combinations.


1.  Build up from the fullback into CM

2.  Build up from fullback into CM using different combinations

3.  Play into wide player, overlap from fullback

4.  Play through the striker, play out wide

Coaching Points:

1.   CM must hold the run until the striker is prepared to pass back. 

2.   Outside Back must time the thru pass to stay onsides.

3.   All runs must be timed so you can run onto the ball as opposed to waiting for it.
