Profile

Wisden obituary
Vallance William Crisp Jupp, who collapsed and died in the garden of his home on July 9, aged 69, was one of the rare cricketers who began as a professional and later became an amateur. A splendid allrounder, who played eight times for England, he was one of the best players in the country between the two World Wars. Born at Burgess Hill, Sussex on March 27, 1891, Jupp was educated privately and later went to St. John's School, Burgess Hill, where he became captain of the eleven. In his last year there he averaged over 100 with the bat and his achievements attracted the attention of the county authorities. He started with Sussex as a professional and made steady progress. In 1914 he played an innings of 217 not out against Worcestershire at Worcester and averaged over 36 for the season. With 51 wickets, he headed the county bowling averages that year.
