This drill from MyPersonalFootballCoach.com is a stupendous way to hone fast feet: requiring three players, three balls and a square of cones, it lets you alternate between zig-zagging your way to the goalmouth, and stopping your teammates from doing the same.
Fun, fitness-boosting and an absolute skill superbooster.
