Edward Quigley (13 July 1921 – 18 April 1997) was an English football player and manager.
He scored 179 goals from 337 appearances in the Football League playing as a centre-forward for Bury, Sheffield Wednesday, Preston North End and Blackburn Rovers in the post World War II era. He was transferred from Sheffield Wednesday to Preston for a fee of £26,500, which was at the time a British transfer record.
In April 1967, after a brief spell as caretaker manager at Blackburn, Quigley was confirmed in the position on a permanent basis. In October 1970, he was replaced by Johnny Carey and became chief scout. He and Carey were both sacked on 7 June 1971.
