used to read as a kid? It involved a team that was terrible but over the course of the book became good thanks mainly to a girl who played for them. The girl was named after George Best if I remember rightly. Also, I think I remember there being an Indian kid who got sent off in one game for punching an opposing player. The antagonists of the book were a team called something 'Albion.'

I know there is not much to go on but if anyone can give me the title I will be very grateful. Thanks.
