Playing career[edit]

Allen began his career at Brentford joining the club aged 14, whilst his father was first-team manager of the club. Allen progressed into the youth team team but was not offered a professional contract at the end of his 2 year scholarship. During the summer he spent sometime at a Swedish division 4 club Ånge IF. After that Allen joined Dagenham & Redbridge youth academy, playing for Billericay Town on dual-registration,[3] before signing at Notts County for the start of the 2011–12 season. He made his debut in a 2–0 defeat to Preston North End at Deepdale on 27 August 2011, before he was replaced by Alan Judge after 67 minutes.[4]

In May 2012 he was released by the club, along with 12 other players.[5] Two months later he was signed by Football League Two side Gillingham on an initial one-year deal, with the option of extending for a further season. He made his debut for Gillingham on 18 August in 3–1 win against Bradford City

On 31 October 2013 Allen was loaned to Tamworth.[6]

On 14 February 2014, Allen had his contract at Gillingham cancelled by mutual consent.[7] The following month he signed for Margate of the Isthmian League Premier Division.[8]
