Under 8s Training – 2nd November 2014

We had some good warm up and ball drills including passing along the line in 3s, over/under & left/right, once again to the rhythm of Mitchel`s chain gang songs in his group.

This was followed by some sprint races with ball in two hands over various distances – priceless moment when Archie was half a length clear as last man in his group and I was last in our group but couldn’t` catch up. Archie actually turned around and taunted me as he crossed the line….got revenge in next longer distance run…!!!

We trained on a large area to try and encourage running into open spaces during the numbers game but the lads still found themselves attracted to a 5m square area on lots of occasions and needed constant reminders to look for and use the space.

STAR OF THE WEEK. Particularly impressive to me was Guy who is s really strong and confident runner, considering he is a newcomer. Great to see

Overall a good session had by all
Next week we are away at Bolton, 10:30 start but earlier if you can.
