Born in Wellington,[1] Pearce joined Barnsley on a three-year scholarship in December 1999 and progressed through the academy ranks at the club and into the reserves.[2] In August 2002, Pearce joined Worksop Town on work experience for an indefinite period,[3] impressing in a pre-season friendly victory over Sheffield Wednesday[4] before making his Northern Premier League debut for the Tigers in the 2-0 home defeat to Burscough on 17 August 2002.[5]

In October 2002 he signed professionally for Lincoln City where he made a number of League 2 appearances [6] before returning to his native New Zealand to play for Waitakere United.

In September 2006, Allan re-signed with Waitakere United after a short spell playing in England again, this time with Worksop Town when they were in the Conference North Division.

Pearce has represented New Zealand at under 17 and under 23 level.[7]
