Alan is a natural right back, but is also comfortable playing at left back or in midfield. He started his career at Cork City where he made 62 appearances having come through the youth ranks. But in 2004, having lost the right back slot to Neal Horgan, he moved to Munster rivals Waterford United. He spent one season at Waterford, during which time he appeared for the Blues in the 2004 FAI Cup final defeat to Longford Town.

In January 2005 Alan returned to Cork, signing for Cobh Ramblers where he spent the next four seasons. Operating mainly in midfield he won a First Division title with the Rams in 2007, but also a member of the team which were relegated in 2008. Sadly, Ramblers did not survive to taste the First Division again, instead being denied a League license by the FAI. Alan moved on, signing for a second spell at Waterford United in 2009.

Alan made 42 league appearances during his second stint at Waterford, which lasted for two seasons. Then, at the start of 2011, he returned to where it all started, signing for Tommy Dunne at Cork City. His second coming at Turner's Cross was short, however, and Alan left Cork in May of 2011. In the summer of 2011 he signed for Avondale United in the Munster Senior League.
