Become the ultimate goalscorer: Cut through the defence

Use this drill to blitz the opposition's rearguard with defence-splitting passes and clinical finishes

Swansea City have become known for their slick, on-the-deck play over recent years, and the club’s Swans Academy, where trainees learn their trade, is a brilliant production line for players who can pass and move.

This drill can help do the same for your club – encouraging positive forward passes and neat teamwork to create more, and better chances. You’ll need four forwards and a keeper and four mannequins, and the quick combos of through balls, crosses and finishes will speed up the footwork and awareness of even the most sluggish final third operative.
