Allen (first name and dates unknown) was an English cricketer who played in first-class matches for Kent during the 1740s. He is recorded playing for William Hodsoll's XI against Long Robin's XI at the Artillery Ground on Thursday, 9 July 1747. The match was arranged by the London Cricket Club but the result is unknown.
As Allen had established his reputation by 1745, he must have been active for some years previously and his career probably began in the 1730s. Very few players were mentioned by name in contemporary reports and there are no other references to Allen. One source says he may have played in 1751 in a match between Kent and Hampshire.
