Cédric Anselin (born 24 July 1977 in Lens, Pas-de-Calais) is a former professional footballer, now playing non-league football for Lowestoft Town in Suffolk, England. He is a midfield player and was a French under-21 international.

Anselin began his career in his native France with Bordeaux and Lille. While with Bordeaux, he played in the 1996 UEFA Cup Final alongside, among others, Zinedine Zidane and Bixente Lizarazu.

Anselin joined English club Norwich City on loan towards the end of the 1998-99 season and signed permanently for a fee of £250,000 in the summer of 1999. He found it difficult to settle at Carrow Road due in part to the language barrier, and the club agreed to release him in the summer of 2001. He scored one goal during his spell at Norwich, his strike coming in a 4-2 win over Oxford United.

He spent the majority of the 2001-02 season with Scottish club Ross County before his career took him to Bolivian team Oriente Petrolero. He returned to England and had a short spell with Cambridge United before moving into non-league football. A brief spell at King's Lynn was followed by a move further down the league pyramid to Dereham Town late in 2007. He has recently signed a contract with Lowestoft Town F.C.

On 25 August 2009, he joined reserve team management team of Norwich United. He also made a brief 45 minute appearance against a Norwich City 11 in a July 2010 preseason friendly.
