Brent Sancho (born March 13, 1977 in Port of Spain) is a Trinidadian soccer player who currently plays for Rochester Rhinos in the USL First Division.





Sancho spent his college years playing for St. John's University in New York City, where he was part of the school's only National Championship, in 1996.


Sancho 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.

In December 2007 Sancho joined Millwall on a month's contract.[1] This was not renewed and he found himself once again without a club until signing for Scottish Football League Division Two champions Ross County, in March 2008 until the end of the 2007–08 season. Sancho went on trial with Wrexham F.C. in July 2008 but was not signed by the club.[2].

On June 30, 2008, the TTFF reported that Sancho had been training with TT Pro League team San Juan Jabloteh and Wrexham in an effort to regain a place with the national team as well as further his professional career. [3] Eventually, Sancho returned to the USA in August 2008, joining the Atlanta Silverbacks[4] and playing in eight matches in the remaining part of the season.

On February 26, 2009 the Rochester Rhinos announced the signing of Sancho to a two-year contract.[5]


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.

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 2009).
