Emily is very excited; the Sodor United football team are playing in a match. Thomas is taking the team to the game and Emily is given the job of taking the dirty washing to be cleaned. Emily is cross; she thinks she deserves a more important job, so she goes to help Thomas. When she finds him at the station, the Fat Controller is cross with her. He reminds her that collecting the dirty kits is a very important job and she sets off to meet the laundry lady. Unfortunately, there is no time to dry them, but Emily has an idea. The team's kits are tied to Emily's funnel and by the time she arrives back at the station, the kits are dry - much to the team's delight!
