    THE Boot boosted their bid to avoid relegation on Monday night when they beat Golden Lion in a nine-frame thriller in Division Two of the Chalk Farm Pool League to pocket only their second win of the season. 

    The King’s Cross-based crew (above) raced into a two-frame lead, but the Lions looked set to claw out an impressive fight back when they roared 4-2 ahead to move within one frame of victory. 

    But The Boot matched their rivals’ battling qualities as they won all three remaining frames, with Chas Parker (in the hooped T-shirt) sinking the deciding black to seal a pulsating 5-4 win.
