"Ronald David "Ron" Allan" was an Australian rules footballer who played with North Melbourne Football Club/North Melbourne in the Australian Football League/Victorian Football League (VFL).

Allan, a utility from West Melbourne, played with the North Melbourne seconds during the war, but had to wait until he left to army to make his senior debut. He made 14 league appearances for North Melbourne, from 1946 to 1949.

Midway through the 1949 season, Allan got a clearance to Brighton Football Club/Brighton, in the Victorian Football League/Victorian Football Association (VFA). In 1950, Allan captained the North Melbourne seconds team, which finished runners-up. He returned to the VFA in 1951, joining Northern Blues/Preston, then in 1952 moved to Tasmania to captain-coach North West Football Union club Latrobe Football Club/Latrobe. His time in charge of Latrobe included a top four finish in 1953.

His son, Barry Allan (footballer)/Barry, played for North Melbourne in the 1960s.

She's pretty good considering her size. If she can keep the ball alive, she uses her quickness to get the tip.

West Port is a different animal. They have speed. They can press. They have big bodies inside. They have three-point shooters and they have two-point shooters. We are going to have to come out and put forth a great effort, to where we have a chance in the end.

She's the kind of kid who can carry you. There were times she did. She'd go on an 8-0 run. That's a nice luxury to have. She'd go down and score two or three times in a row and make up a lot of points.

Now all we have to do is win against West Port.

I'm ready to go. It's seven days a week, 24 hours a day. You're always thinking about it.

There were times she didn't know which direction she was going to go in. This year she understood she was going to have to play every game hard and there weren't a bunch of kids around here to pick up the pieces.
