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. In his eight first-class appearances for Lancashire, he took 25 wickets at an average of 30.36, with best figures of 4/71. A poor batsman, he scored just 2 runs from five innings, averaging 0.66. He also represented the Lancashire Second XI in the Minor Counties Championship, which allowed him to represent a combined Minor Counties team against the touring West Indians at Lord's in 1939. 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.
