Edward "Ned" Barkas (21 November 1901 – 24 April 1962) was an English professional footballer who played as a full-back. He played in the Football League First Division for Huddersfield Town, Birmingham and Chelsea.

Barkas was born in Wardley, Gateshead. He won two league championship medals and an FA Cup runners-up medal in 1928 with Huddersfield before becoming manager Leslie Knighton's first signing for Birmingham, where he made nearly 300 appearances and won another FA Cup runners-up medal in 1931. On leaving Birmingham Barkas followed Knighton to Chelsea, returning to the Midlands on the outbreak of the Second World War.

He came from a footballing family: his brother Sam played for and captained England, a cousin, Billy Felton, also played for England, and three other brothers Tommy, James and Harry were professional footballers. He died in Little Bromwich, Nechells, Birmingham, at the age of 60.
