The Tuesday Coaches Tip...Pass - Pass - Shoot...
Set up a goal at each end of a half field or large grid, with a keeper in each goal. Lines are formed on either side of both goals and two players are positioned in the middle of the field. The keeper rolls the ball in front of Player One who takes a touch and then passes to Player Two. Player Two lays the ball off to the side and the advancing Player One plays another pass to Player 3. Player 3 sets up Player One... for a shot on goal. Both lines work continuously.
1. Change the direction of the attack and force players to pass and shoot with their other foot.
- Focus on accuracy before power.
- Try using the inside of the foot to placed the ball inside the front post.
- Drive the ball using the laces to the far post.

The Sunday Skills School...this week the 'Fake Stanley Matthews'...an adapted move from one named after a legend of the game...
Sir Stanley Matthews, CBE (1 February 1915 – 23 February 2000) was an English footballer. Often regarded as one of the greatest players of the British game, he is the only player to have been knighted while still playing football, as well as being the first winner of both the European Footballer of the Year and the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year awards. Matthews' nicknames included "The Wizard of the Dribble" and "The Magician".
