Ed Cunningham was born on 16 May 1962 at Oxford and was educated at Marlborough College. He comes from an illustrious cricketing family; both his uncle, F.G. Mann and great-uncle, F.T. Mann captained England. Cunningham was a middle order or opening batsman and made his first-class debut for Gloucestershire against the Indians in 1982. In all he played in 14 first-class games for the county, scoring 271 runs at an average of 15.94. His highest score, 61 not out against the Sri Lankans was his sole first-class half century.
Cunningham was more successful in limited-overs cricket, particularly when he was promoted to open the Gloucestershire innings during the 1984 season. In 17 List A matches he scored 349 runs at an average of 26.84 with two fifties, the highest being 56 against Leicestershire at Grace Road in the John Player Special League in 1984.
