Coaching Corner

Dealing with cut backs from the dead ball line

Aim - To improve goalkeepers' ability to position themselves correctly from cut backs and to save from close range.

Key Points

  1. 1. When the goalkeeper shuffles across goal make sure he/she takes small, quick steps to stay in contact with the ground, this will enable them to change direction quickly and at will.
  2. 2. Ensure that the goalkeeper does not come too far across goal as this will leave the corner they came from exposed.
  3. 3. Get in the set position ready to save.
  4. 4. Prepare the goalkeeper to improvise as he/she will have to react quickly and may have to save with their feet as well as their hands.
