James William Barrett (19 January 190725 November 1970) was an English footballer who played for West Ham United.

Born in Stratford, London, Barrett began playing football at the city's Park School, after moving from Abbey School because it lacked a team. He played at Park with Billy "Bubbles" Murray, who is linked with the history of West Ham's anthem "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles".

He played his first game at Upton Park for West Ham Boys against Liverpool in the English Shield Final of 1920-21.

He signed professional forms with the East London club in 1923 at the age of 16, but didn't play his first senior game until March 28 1925, against Spurs at White Hart Lane. He was an ever-present during the 1925-26 and 1926-27 seasons, and was also the club's top appearance maker for the 1930-31 and 1932-33 seasons. He went on to make a total of 467 appearances for West Ham, scoring 53 goals.

Barrett's only international appearance came against Northern Ireland in 1928, where he lasted four minutes before succumbing to injury.

Big Jim's son, James Guy Barrett, also played for West Ham, and he had the opportunity of playing with Jim Jr. while in charge of the A team in 1945-46.
