Edmund Joe Adams (1 February 1915 – 1 March 2005) was an English cricketer who played one first-class match for Somerset in July 1935.[1] Adams was born in Shepton Mallet and died in Kingston upon Thames.

Adams batted in just one innings of the match against Essex at Clacton.[2] He scored five coming in fifth in the batting order in the first innings, but when Somerset captain Reggie Ingle rejigged the order to make swift runs for a declaration in the second innings, Adams did not bat. Ingle's tactics were justified with a 150-run victory.
