George Ian Boyd (born 2 October 1985) is a footballer who plays for Peterborough United as a winger.

Boyd started his career in the Charlton Athletic youth system, joining Stevenage Borough of the Conference National in 2001 and making his first-team debut in 2002. Boyd spent five seasons at Stevenage, scoring over thirty goals from midfield in all competitions. He left in January 2007 to join League Two side Peterborough United for a fee of £260,000, and won two successive promotions in the 2007 08 and 2008 09 seasons. In March 2010, Boyd joined Nottingham Forest on loan until the end of the 2009 10 season. On return to his parent club in July 2010, Boyd signed a new three-year contract at Peterborough. He also played for the England National Game XI team, who represent England at non-League level, from 2005 to 2006, earning six caps and scoring one goal. Despite being born in England, his maternal grandfather comes from Scotland and he played for the Scotland B team in 2009.
