Edward Archibald Bruce, known until August 1875 as Edward Archibald Brice (1 September 1849 – 14 November 1918) was an English cricketer who played first-class cricket in six matches for Gloucestershire as a right-arm fast bowler.[1] He took 20 wickets at a bowling average of 13.20, with two five-wicket hauls, both in 1872.[2][3] In non-first-class cricket he made 30 appearances for Cheltenham College, Birkenhead Park and Somerset. He also served in the armed forces, stationed in Winchester.[4][5] In August 1875 he changed his surname from Brice to Bruce, and scorecards after that date record his new surname.[4] Born in Andhra Pradesh in British India, he died in Hove in Sussex.[1]
