A good forward can score all kinds of goal, because chances aren’t always going to fall to a favoured foot or area of strength. Eric Ramsey, Swansea City’s under-18s academy coach, has devised a dedicated drill to hone a variety of different finishes.
Using two goals, three stations and eight players, it will improve strikes made from crosses, via one-twos, running onto layed-off balls, and dribbling into one-on-ones with the keeper. Practice again and again to turn weaknesses into a strength.
