Joel Alan Byrom (born 14 September 1986) is an English professional footballer who plays for League One side Stevenage as a midfielder, having joined the club in May 2009.

Byrom started his career at Blackburn Rovers at the age of 14, and spent four and a half years on the club's books, progressing from their centre of excellence to the reserve team. However, he failed to make any first-team appearances for the club, and was subsequently released in summer 2006. He joined League Two outfit Accrington Stanley before the start of the 2006 07 season, but only managed a total of two appearances. He was released by the club in January 2007, and opted to join local side Clitheroe on a short-term basis. Byrom then joined Southport, scoring twice in two appearances for the side, before rejoining Clitheroe in August 2007; captaining the side at the age of 20.

He attracted the interest of Northwich Victoria, who subsequently signed him for a small four-figure fee in January 2008. Byrom spent a year and a half at the Cheshire club, before joining Stevenage for a fee of £15,000 in May 2009 helping them achieve promotion to the Football League for the first time in the club's history. Byrom was also part of the Stevenage side that earned back-to-back promotions to League One during the 2010 11 season. He has also played for the England C team and earned his solitary cap in a game against the Belgium U21 team.
