James Guy Barrett (born 5 November 1930 in West Ham, London) was an English footballer who played for West Ham United. His father, James William Barrett, also played for the club from 1924 to 1939.

Jim Jnr played football as a junior for West Ham, and played with his father as a teenager for West Ham A in 1945-46. He signed for the senior side in February 1949 and went on to make 85 league and 2 cup appearances for the east London club, scoring 25 goals.

He was sold to Nottingham Forest at Christmas 1954 for a hefty fee, and went on to become their top scorer for the 1956 57 season. He also played for Birmingham City for a short while.
