He went on to make 64 appearances for the club over the next three years, scoring 28 goals. His most notable achievement in blue and white came in a 5-1 home win over Oldham Athletic in which he scored all five goals.
‘Five goal’ Folland’s feat has yet to be matched by a Pools player since and remains a club record for goals scored in a single Football League game by an individual player.
After finishing playing, Folland went on to become a toolmaker until his retirement but would often recall fond memories of playing for Pools to his grandchildren.
The former United striker sadly passed away on New Year’s Day 2021. His funeral will take place at Stranton Crematorium on January 15.
