George Alexander Edwards (born 29 July 1992) is an English cricketer, playing for Lancashire.

Edwards is the fifth of six children born to Dennis (1956-2012) and Anne Edwards (b. 1955). He was named after the West Indian cricketer George Headley. He came through the ranks of Surrey, making his first-class debut in 2011 against Cambridge MCCU.[1] He was selected for an ECB training camp in February 2013.[2]

Edwards along with Jack Winslade was released by Surrey towards the end of the 2014 season, with the agreement they could join the MCC Young Cricketers for the 2015 campaign.[3] However, in November 2014 Edwards signed a two-year deal with Lancashire.[4]
