DATE OF BIRTH

19/10/1999

SIGNED

01/07/2016

The Darwen-based goalkeeper joined the Clarets in 2011 after impressing in local football.

His father, Craig, was also a goalkeeper who completed a scholarship at Rangers before his footballing career was ended prematurely due to injury.

Injury disrupted Adam's own early career at Turf Moor but he was given an extension to his scholarship to compensate.

An outstanding run of performances as the Clarets' under-18s reached the finals of the 2017 Cee Cup in the Czech Republic earned Bruce the award as the competition's top goalkeeper.
