John Thom Clarke Eadie (25 September 1861 – 19 August 1923) was an English brewer and cricketer who played for Derbyshire in 1882.

Eadie was born in Burton-on-Trent Staffordshire, the son of James Eadie and his wife Jean. His father, who was from Scotland, had established the James Eadie brewery company at Burton in 1854.[1] In 1881 Eadie was a clerk in his father's brewery.[2]

Eadie appeared in one match for Derbyshire during the 1882 season, against Lancashire. He finished not out in the first innings but was out for a duck in the second, bowling economically and taking one wicket during the match.[3]

Eadie died at Lichfield at the age of 62.

Eadie's brother, William Eadie and nephew Kenneth Dobson both played first-class cricket for Derbyshire.
