Edward E. 'Teddy' Cross was an English footballer who played as a defender. Born in Northwich he started out with local side Northwich Victoria before moving across the Pennines to play for Rotherham Town.[1] After a season at Town he moved to nearby Sheffield United with whom he played in the Midland Counties League and the FA Cup.[1] After just one season at Bramall Lane he returned to former club Northwhich Victoria before rejoining Rotherham Town.[1]

A brief spell at Chesterfield followed, from whom he was dismissed for not turning up to play the scheduled Easter fixtures, before finishing his career with a third spell with Rotherham Town where he was to make his Football League debut.[1]
