Corey Taylor has aired his delight on Twitter after making his debut for the club during their 1-0 defeat against Huddersfield on Tuesday night.
The 19-year-old was brought on as a late substitute during the Championship clash and did state that he was disappointed with the result on the night.
A number of youngsters have made appearances under Bruce recently, with injuries being one of the factors behind that.
Taylor can play on the wing, but the club’s academy graduate would not have been on the bench had the likes of Jack Grealish, Andre Green or Birkir Bjarnason been fit and available to play.
Nonetheless, he was given the opportunity by Bruce and despite the defeat, on a personal note, the youngster was pleased.
“On a personal note I am very happy to have made my debut for Aston Villa,” Taylor wrote on his personal Twitter account. “But disappointed about the result.”

After playing for a brief three minutes against the Terriers, Taylor will most likely return to the under-23 setup.
He missed the youngsters last Premier League 2 clash against Wolves on Monday night because he was training with the senior team.
During his time with the under-23s this season, Taylor has played 15 games, scoring two goals and supplying three assists during those matches.
Erdington-born Taylor predominantly plays on the right wing, but he can occupy the left-hand side of attack too.
Villa, who lost their first game in three matches, will now turn their attention to the weekend with Sheffield Wednesday visiting Villa Park.
