Edward John Hack (1 October 1913 at Long Ashton, Somerset, England – 20 September 1987 at Bath), was a cricketer who played one first-class match for Somerset in 1937.

Hack batted at No 8 in the first Somerset innings of the match against Lancashire at Old Trafford, and did not bat in the second innings of a drawn game.[1] Cricket websites agree that he batted right-handed, but do not indicate a bowling style: however, the record of a Somerset Second Eleven match from 1939 in which Hack took wickets suggests that he may have been an all-rounder.[2] In his one first-class match, he did not bowl. A book published in 2017 states that Hack was regarded in his club cricket career for Clevedon Cricket Club primarily as a batsman, and often opened the batting, but he did also bowl and, on occasion, he kept wicket.[3]
