Emmerson Orlando Boyce (born 24 September 1979 in Aylesbury) is an English-born professional footballer who has represented Barbados at international level. He is currently a player at Wigan Athletic, and usually plays as a right back, but can also play in the centre of defence.

Boyce started his career at the age of sixteen as an apprentice at Luton Town. He rose through the ranks and eventually established himself in the first team, and went on to make 185 league appearances for the club, scoring eight goals.

He joined Crystal Palace on a free transfer in 2004, where he played in the Premier League for the first time, but he and his teammates were unable to prevent the club from being relegated to the Championship. He spent two years at the club, making 69 league appearances and scoring one goal.

After Crystal Palace failed to gain promotion, Boyce returned to Premier League football in 2006, this time with Wigan Athletic after completing a move for a fee of £1 million, and was a key player during his first season when the club narrowly avoided relegation. He has remained an active member of the first-team throughout his spell at Wigan, and to date has made over 100 league appearances for the club.
