Edward "Ned" Barkas (21 November 1901 – 24 April 1962) was an English professional footballer who played as a full-back. He played in the Football League First Division for Huddersfield Town, Birmingham and Chelsea.
Barkas was born in Wardley, Gateshead.

On leaving Birmingham Barkas followed Knighton to Chelsea, returning to the Midlands on the outbreak of the Second World War.
He came from a footballing family: his brother Sam played for and captained England, a cousin, Billy Felton, also played for England, and three other brothers Tommy, James and Harry were professional footballers. He died in Little Bromwich, Nechells, Birmingham, at the age of 60.
