Edward Bishop (born 14th May 1993, Pinehaven) is a Southern Arc Islands footballer who currently plays for FC Warmhoven in Libertas and the Southern Arc Islands national football team, as a forward.

Bishop began his footballing career in late 2011 with the youth system of Pinehaven Rangers. He developed quickly, and was promoted to their main squad in mid-2012. Though he mostly played as a substitute with the main team, he performed well, and was considered a good youth prospect. He was bought in early 2014 by Libertan club FC Warmhoven, where he has played since. He soon became a starting eleven player for FC Warmhoven, and in the Libertan League 2015 he scored an impressive 18 goals, one less that top goalscorer Ali Benasser. He continued to develop in the next two seasons, scoring 19 goals in 2015-16 and 22 in 2016-17; in the latter season, he again finished as second-best goalscorer.

Bishop made his debut for the Southern Arc Islands national football team at the 2015 Worldwide Cup, and scored his first goal in a friendly against Lovia two months later.
