Career[edit]

Allen began his career at Fulham, where he spent a year in the youth team before being released due to his size.[1] He also had a trial with Reading, and then joined Barnet in the summer of 2011, signing a two-year scholarship. He made his debut as a 73rd-minute substitute for Curtis Weston in an FA Cup first round tie at home to Oxford United on 3 November 2012.[2] In January 2013, Allen signed a "long term" professional contract with the Bees.[3] He joined Kingstonian on loan on 10 January 2014.[4] Then, on 19 February, he joined Redhill on loan.[5] Allen scored his first goal for Barnet in a 3-3 draw at Lincoln City on the final day of the 2013-14 season.[6] He joined Wingate & Finchley on a three-month loan on 23 October 2014.[7]

On 28 July 2015, Allen following his release from Barnet signed for League Two side Yeovil Town on a one-year deal.[8]

On 1 February 2016, Allen signed for Torquay United from Yeovil until the end of the season.[9]

On 22 July 2016, after his release from Torquay, Allen signed for Aldershot Town following a successful trial.[10]

On 21 December 2016, Allen was released from Aldershot Town by manager Gary Waddock.[11]

On 8 March 2017, Allen joined Wrexham after a successful spell on trial at the club.[12] However, he was released by the club two months later at the end of the season.[13]

Following his departure from Wrexham at the end of the season, Allen signed for Bromley, who he had impressed against for the Dragons just a month earlier. [14]
