In this Player Development Project webinar replay, we continue our series of discussions around position specific work and how you can create sessions to support their development across a variety of roles. This time, we focus on how coaches can support young players develop defensive skills and problem solving ability.

PDP Co-Founder, Dave Wright hosts PDP Technical Advisor, Dan Wright & Leicester City FC Academy Coach, Mark Lyons for an interactive discussion with a defensive focus. Our panel of UEFA A licensed expert coaches present practical ideas for discussion, including some of their favourite sessions, types of defender, attributes to look out for in young players, and some practical advice for you to consider. Like all of our webinar events, this one featured live audience Q&A and it was an in depth conversation with great engagement from PDP members.
