A spin bowler unafraid to toss the ball up and give it a rip, from an early age Allbrook was known for his control of loop and drift whilst still extracting sharp turn. Occasionally struggling to hit a consistent line and length, when he did he was devastating, capable of getting the ball to float high above the eyeline, shape in the air before bursting savagely form the rough. He made his FC debut aged 21 on a turning pitch and took his maiden 5wi in the second dig. Despite not being a regular pick, he managed a 5wi in each of his first four games and also took a maiden 10wm in his third (and second in his 4th) leaving him with 5 5wi and 2 10wm in his first 4 FC games. He then became a regular first teamer in FC as a 23 year old and proved his wroth immediately by taking the best innings figures by a spinner (9-36) in his second game (8th career) eventually finishing with 63 wickets in a very successful season. After helping the Ducklings to the top flight he found himself surprisingly in-and-out of the FC XI due in part to a spectacular loss of form. Another contributing factor was a side effect of the spinner-heavy approach being taken (with Rawlence joining the side). The junior spinner Rawlence possessed superior batting and took to the longer format like a fish to water, comprehensively out-bowling him in the first round of matches. He never again found himself able to force himself into the side as a regular despite having the best average of any spinner to play FC cricket thus far.
In OD cricket he was often required to pull double duty across two leagues. He was rarely potent, bar a couple of excellent seasons, but often bowled long spells in the mid-late game. He leaves the leading OD wicket taker, and thus far only Duckling to have over 200 wickets,
He moves on with a good few seasons left in him in search of regular first team cricket.
