Academy Football Philosophy
Preston North End Academy strive to develop young footballers who are able to play attractive attacking football whilst making good decisions
whilst the game is in play. We want to encourage our teams to play out from the back whenever possible using the goalkeeper as a player who
can create good supporting angles. Midfielders are encouraged to create angles to get on the ball and show a bravery to receive the ball in tight
areas. They have to be bright in possession and look to try and create inventive play going forwards when the opportunity is on. Players must
show a good understanding of the game so that they understand what passes, runs and support should be made on and off the ball. The
players must develop a good work ethic and understand the importance of being part of a team. Whenever the players are out of possession
they must look to work hard as an individual and as a team to win the ball back at the earliest opportunity. As the players progress through
the phases a winning mentality must be developed so that the young players are ready for 1st team football. They must also be disciplined on
the pitch and conduct themselves in a professional manner when off the pitch always representing themselves and Preston North End in a
positive manner.
In summary: PNE - ‘What Kind Of Player We Want to Develop’
Disciplined – (on and off the pitch)
Hard working (individually and Team) when looking to retain possession
Bright when in possession
Intelligent on the ball and off the ball (Game Understanding)
Creative
Able & Willing to work for / with the team
Positive
A Desire to succeed / Win

APP05. Academy Philosophy cont.…
PNE - ‘General Playing Style’
Attacking / In Possession Principles
Play realistically from the back (GK has final decision on whether or not he rolls / kicks / volleys ETC out
When defenders (own players) have the ball – need movement from midfield players (Rotation) and Forwards to look to get into spaces to receive The
Ball
Try and play at all times, but if the short passes are not on then look to play good balls for Forward players in behind the oppositions defenders
When in possession of the ball, The Player in possession has the final decision on whether to pass short or long.
In Possession try not to have too many touches (can you play the ball early)
Change the direction of the play quickly (i.e. From The left to The Right & Vica-Versa) – We need width / depth & Length for this
Passes have got to be realistic (i.e. Are we winning the game (keep the ball); Are we losing the game (need to create opportunities; Do Not overplay in
your own third)
Look to create spaces for yourself to ‘get on the ball’ / Look get play in-between players
When in The final third (attacking third) players need to be creative and positive to create scoring opportunities sand untimely goals.
In the final third, Players need to understand the need for patience when unable to score goals and to pass the ball in order to create spaces / gaps.
When attacking need to have good / realistic balance in the team (i.e. both Midfield Players can’t join in with the attack)
Defending / Out of Possession Principles
‘Game Craft’ to understand when to pressure the ball and when to sit off and be patience
Win 2nd Balls & when you win The 2nd Balls retain possession
Reaction to play when you lose possession of the ball needs to be positive (Can you win the ball back early)
Transition Principles
Create Space when team in possession of the ball (Width / Depth / Length)
Use the Fast / Physical players to your advantage (i.e. Ball in Behind in Forwards have pace & Power)
Players need to have intelligence to switch from one formation to another and have the intelligence to understand their roles in different formations
(i.e. 4-4-2 to a 4-3-3 / 4-3-3 to a 4-5-1 ETC)
Retain possession when the team / you win the ball back
