Having played in seven divisions for Fleetwood through the course of six promotions, Pond was recognised by Guinness as holding the world record for appearing in the most different divisions with a single football club. 
Having made his first appearance on 11 August 2012 against Southport at Centre back, the following game on 14 August 2012 he scored a 69th minute opening goal in the 1–2 home defeat against Stockport, a superb right footed over head kick in off the cross bar.
After playing three times for Grimsby, Pond extended his loan stay until January 2013. On 8 September 2012 he scored his second goal for Grimsby in a 1–0 victory against Forest Green Rovers, a free-kick by Frankie Artus was met by Pond, glancing his header home.
Following a successful loan spell, Grimsby looked into extending Pond's loan beyond January or possibly securing him on a permanent deal but on 1 January 2013 they admitted it was unlikely because Fleetwood were interested in taking the player back to look at him. Pond's final appearance for Grimsby in his loan spell brought his fifth goal of the season against Hereford United, scoring two minutes into the game. Pond commented before his final game that the loan spell had been successful for both himself and the club and that he would relish the prospect of returning to Grimsby on a permanent deal in the January transfer window if he was unable to win back his place in the Fleetwood team.
