Scruffy defending
Organization
? Split the pitch into 3 channels working in the final third
? Channels are funnelled
? Reds defend for 5 minutes then swap
? N player starts each attack & serves the ball wide
? 2 yellows & 1 red player are allowed in the wide channel
? Reds defend a ?variety? of crosses (e.g. from deep, byeline etc)

Progression
? If reds win the ball they pass into N who recycles the ball wide
? The game is really ?messy? and the idea is the reds face a series of aerial balls into the penalty area
? Develop into a game

Note
? This game will look messy & the defenders will fight for possession
