Keith Edwards (b. 16 July 1957 - ) was an English football player born in Stockton-on-Tees. A prolific goalscorer, he had two spells (1975 - 1978 and 1981 -1986) at Sheffield United for whom he scored 143 goals in 261 appearances. Whilst with the Blades, he was the highest scoring player in a division twice, scoring 36 goals (one for Hull) in Division 4 in 1981-2 and 33 goals in Division 3 in 1983-4.

In between his time at Bramall Lane he played for Hull City.

He began the 1986-87 season at Leeds United but only managed 9 goals in 51 appearances, although one of those was against Coventry City in the FA Cup semi-final at Hillsborough in 1987.

Aberdeen secured his services in 1987 and he returned to Hull City in 1988. He later played for Stockport County, Huddersfield Town and finished his career at Plymouth Argyle in 1990. He is one of the select band of players to have scored over 250 league goals in English football.

In recent years, Keith has worked for BBC Radio Sheffield commentating on matches involving one of his former clubs, Sheffield United.
