Cyril Arthur Edge (14 December 1916 – 5 October 1985) was an English cricketer. Edge was a right-handed batsman who bowled right-arm fast-medium. He was born at Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire.

Edge made his first-class debut for Lancashire against Worcestershire at Old Trafford in the 1936 County Championship. He made seven further first-class appearances for the county, the last of which came against Essex in the 1938 County Championship.[1] In his eight first-class appearances for Lancashire, he took 25 wickets at an average of 30.36, with best figures of 4/71.[2] A poor batsman, he scored just 2 runs from five innings, averaging 0.66.[3] He also represented the Lancashire Second XI in the Minor Counties Championship,[4] which allowed him to represent a combined Minor Counties team against the touring West Indians at Lord's in 1939.[1] Batting first, the West Indians made 370 all out, with Edge taking figures of 4/97 from sixteen overs. The Minor Counties responded in their first-innings by making 310 all out, with Edge himself ending the innings not out on 15, his highest score in first-class cricket. In their second-innings, the West Indians were reached 138/4, with edge bowling five wicketless overs. The match ended as a draw.[5]

He died at Ormskirk, Lancashire, on 5 October 1985.
