Welwyn Pegasus Playing Philosophy Season 2014

Welwyn Pegasus FC Vision is to create football players and help those players to stay in love with the game

                                                             Playing Philosophy

Welwyn Pegasus Football Club believes in developing players to the best of their ability.

We want to create technically good players who can play through the thirds but can make the right decision at the right time.  We want to develop ‘INDEPENDENT DECISION MAKERS’ i.e. players that are able to diagnose and solve problems during the ebb and flow of play.  Each player will be able to make the ‘best decision’ of when to play long or short, direct and methodical or to be patient or quick.


                                                               Playing Ethos

1, Each player plays at least 50% of the game     (allowing for issues such as injuries etc.)

2, We try to be more sporting than the other team (e.g. commit fewer fouls etc.)

3, We try to play creative, attractive, attacking football

4, We try to win the game – but not at the expense of points 1,2 and 3 above

                                                              Playing Identity

•Manage the space between the lines

•Regain the ball as high as possible
