Cyril Trigg (8 April 1917 9 April 1993) was an English professional footballer who made 268 appearances in the Football League playing for Birmingham City.

Trigg was born in Measham, Leicestershire. He spent the whole of his League career nineteen years at Birmingham City for whom he made 291 appearances and scored 72 goals in all competitions. The Second World War started when he was 22 years old, so his career was severely disrupted by the conflict, in which he served in the Royal Air Force in India and Burma. He was twice Birmingham's leading scorer, firstly in the 1946 47 season, despite playing a third of his matches at right-back, and again in the 1950 51 season, by which time he was exclusively a centre forward.

He moved to Stourbridge F.C. in 1954 as player-coach, and retired in 1957. He died in Birmingham aged 76.
