#playingyourpart – what I shall be “stealing” from England’s DNA

From the FA’s “England DNA: Playing your part” conference, I will be taking the focus on “social” skills, from their 4 Corners model.

In particular, I shall be encouraging my players to take five minutes before a game or practice to work together to devise field settings and strategies.  If they don’t talk off the field, what chance is there that they will when they get on the field?
