Steve Bruce was born Stephan Roger Bruce on 31 December 1960 in Corbridge in Northumberland. His father, Joe Bruce a man from the same county, and his mother Sheenagh Bruce belonged to Bangor in Northern Ireland. Steve Bruce lived with his young brother in Daisy Hill near Wallsend.
Bruce completed his schooling at Benfield School. He was a fan of Newcastle United since his childhood days and would sneak into St James’ Park to see his team playing without paying the ticket.
He played football for Wallsend Boys Club like many other future professional players who belonged to his neighborhood. For his passion and sports skills, he was chosen to represent the Newcastle School representative team. He was also selected and put into a team that would serve as ball boys at the age of 13. He played in the 1974 League Cup Final at Wembley Stadium.
He was turned down by many professional clubs during his early years e.g., Derby County, Newcastle United, Southport, and Sunderland. Just the moment Bruce was about to start working as an apprentice plumber at the Swan Hunter dockyard, Third Division club Gillingham offered him a trial period. The manager of this club, Gerry Summers, got impressed by him when he saw him playing at an international youth tournament for Wallsend.
For the trial period, he went to Kent alongside Peter Beardsley, a fellow player from the Wallsend club. Beardsley was not selected, but the club signed Bruce as an apprentice.
During the initial years of his career, Steve Bruce was famous for causing disciplinary issues because of being an over-enthusiastic player full of energy and passion. But later, he became an all-around player on whom the team could easily depend. Now people know him for deliberate and calm playing skills and being able to play well under pressure.
For the first time, he worked as a manager for Sheffield but could not continue with them for long and resigned just after a single season. He stated later that he resigned because of turmoil and a shortage of funds.
He also worked as a manager for several other teams including Sunderland, Birmingham City, Wigan Athletic, and Huddersfield Town. Bruce was given the position of manager for Hull City on June 9, 2012, and he stayed there for many years.
Steve Bruce married Janet (née Smith) in February 1983. Janet is from the Hexham area and the duo is known to have attended the same school.
Now the couple share two children Amy (born in 1987) and Alex (born in 1984). Alex has the same football spirit as his father and Bruce signed his son for Hull City in July 2012. Before that, Alex played at Birmingham City under the management of his father. But Alex had to leave the club in 2006 due to his father being accused of nepotism.
Now coming to Bruce’s daughter Amy. She was linked with Hendrie, an Aston Villa player. Tabloid newspaper stories hinted at their romantic relationship in 2004. This made Steve Bruce angry and he claimed these reports to be wrong.
Bruce was involved in a noisy argument with two men outside his house, trying to forcefully steal his daughter’s car. The struggle left scars on his face but traveled to a Premier League match the very same day.
