    14. 14. Building from the back by David Clarke  Use a 40x30 yard area with three small goals - each two yards wide - at each end.  You'll need balls, bibs and cones.  Adjust player numbers to suit your session.  Each team has three defensive players and a keeper in their defensive half, with two attackers in the opposition half.
    15. 15. Building from the back by David Clarke  Balls start from keepers  This attacking team must make three passes - something they should be able to do quite easily with their 4v2 overload.
    16. 16. Building from the back by David Clarke  Once they complete the three passes, a player can pass or dribble into the opposition half of the pitch, supported by his team mates, which creates a 5v4 overload.
    17. 17. Building from the back by David Clarke  To score, attackers must dribble the ball through any of the three opposition gates.  If the defending team wins the ball back, it can counter attack - there are no offside.  If it cannot counter, passing back to the keeper resets play - opposition players return to their original positions, and the exercise restarts by building from the back.
    18. 18. Building from the back by David Clarke  Utilizing possession is good for technique and means opponents are being asked to work hard to get near the ball.  It rehearses passing into and creating space, forward movement, counter-attacking and support play.  With practice, players can really enjoy the benefits of such skilled and attractive build-up patterns.
