Counter-Pressing Drills

By Arthur Bell –

Area – 30 yds. X 30 yds.
Players x 8 – 11.
Cones x 6.

4 players on the outside plus 1 on the inside V 3 defenders.
Players in black keep possession, passes must go through the player in the circle.

If the three players in the middle win the ball, they immediately try to attack one of the goals. If they score then the defenders are rotated.

The five players who lost possession immediately counter press.
If they cannot press immediately, then they should block the routes to goal.

1. Players are restricted to a maximum of two touches.
2. Players play the ball one touch.
3. Play 7 V 4.
