Brent Sancho (born 13 March 1977 in Port of Spain) is a Trinidad and Tobago international footballer. As of July 2008 he is a free agent.

Club career

He spent his college years playing for St. John's University in New York, where he was part of the school's only National Championship, in 1996. He then spent most of his early career playing in the United States, before joining Dundee in the 2003/04 season. A successful spell in the SPL was followed by a transfer to League One side Gillingham. Predominantly a central defender, Sancho can also operate well at right back.

On 8 May 2007, Gillingham released Sancho.

In December 2007 he joined Millwall on a month's contract.

Sancho went on trial with Wrexham F.C. in July 2008 but was not signed by the club.

International career

Sancho played in all three matches in which Trinidad and Tobago took part in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, thus becoming the first former St. John's player and first current Gillingham player ever to play in a World Cup. In the third match, against Paraguay, he scored an own goal and defeat in this game confirmed Trinidad and Tobago's elimination from the tournament.

During the World Cup Sancho proposed to his girlfriend Jana Herbert-Fiu live on TV during the England-Trinidad and Tobago match, via a text message sent to BBC South East Today's Geoff Clark.

On 9 October, 2006 Sancho announced his retirement from international football along with 12 others. Speaking at a press conference, Sancho said: "It's not just monetary. They have made certain contractual arrangements which they have now reneged on." This followed a dispute between the World Cup Players and the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation regarding money bonuses. The issue went to court in the United Kingdom which ruled in favour of the players. Several of the players have since returned to the national team, however Sancho has not played for T&T since the World Cup (as of June 2008).

On June 30, 2008, the TTFF reported that Sancho had been training with TT Pro League team San Juan Jabloteh and Wrexham F.C. in an effort to regain a place with the national team as well as further his professional career.
