No games over the weekend for the U13-16 Boys but an interesting exercise with the squads participating in a Youth Analysis Task led by Technical Director, Craig Midgley & GCU Youth Coach Jared Adamson, at Saturday’s night’s Men’s game at Meakin Park.
As these players are in FFA’s Game Training Phase, the aim of the night was to improve the players’ ability to identify what is happening tactically on-field and sharpen their perception of how to solve football problems. Players were broken up into groups and given some tactical questions to identify and solve.
Great to see a good turnout of Junior NPL players involved.
The SAP boys rounded off their preseason by travelling to Ipswich to take on Western Pride.
“The focus during the week was taking the 1st touch away from pressure to keep the ball, rather than panicking and clearing the ball when put under pressure. All SAP coaches were impressed by the intent of their players on the day as they attempted to play the positive brand of football Gold Coast United strives for.” Shane Robinson – Director of SAP
