Wisden Obituary
John William Trumble died in Melbourne after a long illness on August 17, 1944, aged 80. By comparison with his famous brother Hugh, John Trumble accomplished little, but he was a useful allround player. In seven Test matches against England he scored 243 runs with an average of 20.2 and took ten wickets at 22.2 apiece. He first played for Victoria in 1884, and for them made 486 runs and took 52 wickets. He bowled with a good high delivery and was noted for accurate length. He came to England with the team captained by HJH Scott in 1886, but never showed form up to the standard of his colleagues. England were superior in every way that season and won all three Test matches, two of them very easily by an innings with many runs to spare. A solicitor by profession, he retained a close connection with cricket and was one of the oldest members of the Melbourne Club.

A letter from him on Cricket Reform to The Times was reprinted in Wisden, 1927. It dealt specially with the over-preparation of pitches, particularly in Australia.
