is it just me, @TreatyStones , @Juhniallio @twiceasnice97 and my uncle who are at this?
where are we with getting 7 year olds ( senior academy) to learn to play out from the the back?
Ive added the retreat line now to our games , we only revert to positions when the ball goes dead and goalkeeper must play ball to a defender, attacters cannot encroach beyond retreat line until defender has received the ball and defender must play it forward…
When the ball in play they are all chasing it… but when it goes dead (goal kick) , i call positons and we revert to the 5 - keeper / 2 defenders / mid / striker…
is it way to early for this carry on
these fellas all have basic ball mastery and are good
