Allan Picken was born in New South Wales, Sydney on 17 September 1981. He is a professional footballer and plays in the centre of defence.

Picken started his career at Sydney FC playing in the youth team but moved to Newcastle Jets after then manager Richard Money signed him. On 31 July 2006 Picken moved to England to once again link up with manager Richard Money who paid for A$50,000 (£20,390) for the defender's services. He only managed two appearances for the Saddlers due to a long term knee problem aggrovated by playing and making his debut against Rochdale on the opening day of the 2006-2007 season in which Walsall won 1-0 thanks to a Martin Butler goal. Allan Picken was very impressive that day. Picken's Walsall contract was ended in April 2007, three months before it was due to expire. Picken moved back to Australia to fully recover from his knee problem. Walsall said that they would welcome Picken back sometime in the future if his knee fully recovers.
