Edward Phillip Solbé (10 May 1902 – 29 December 1961) was an English cricketer.

Born in Bromley, Solbé was a prominent batsman at schoolboy level during World War I, and subsequently made fifteen appearances in first-class cricket for Kent County Cricket Club.[1] Often coming in down the order, Solbé scored two half-centuries for Kent[2]—the first against Sussex in 1921,[3] with the second coming the following season against Worcestershire.[4]

The son of Frank Solbé, who played international hockey for England, Edward died in Nottingham in 1961, aged 59.
