Robert Alexander Boyce (born 7 January 1974) is an English former footballer who played as a midfielder in the Football League for Colchester United.


Born in Islington, London, Boyce began his career with Sheffield Wednesday, although he made no first-team appearances for the club. He then joined Enfield and appeared for Stevenage Borough on trial prior to joining Colchester United in 1995.[1][2][3]

Boyce made his debut for Colchester in a 2–1 victory over Cardiff City at Ninian Park on 28 October 1995, coming on as a substitute for Steve Mardenborough.[4] His final appearance came during a 3–2 away defeat at Doncaster Rovers on 18 November 1995, again as a substitute.[5]

Upon leaving Colchester, Boyce joined Essex neighbours Chelmsford City.[1] In 1996, he made two substitute league appearances and played one cup game for Aylesbury United and also played for Wealdstone during the 2000–01 season.[6]
