Fudbalski Klub Tekstilac Derventa (Serbian Cyrillic: Фудбалски Клуб Teкcтилaц Дepвeнтa) is a football club from the town of Derventa, in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The club competes in the Republika Srpska First League.
In the long and rich history of FK Tekstilac Derventa, the teams which played between 1960 and 1968 will be remembered as one of most talented and the best. The creator and leader of this brilliant team was the legendary attacker Faruk Tarabar. He had plenty football experience and excellent pedagogical skills. He managed to compose the talent and skill of that excellent Tekstilac generation.
Those teams brought lots of fans to the stadium to cheer for FK Tekstilac. Fans came to games in big numbers and players of Tekstilac gave them unforgettable times in that period.
Lots of fans still remember, and they will not forget, the start of the series in 1966/67 when Tekstilac, in the first tree matches, beat first team of FK Radnik Bijeljina with 5:0, then in next game they did the same thing to team of NK Zvijezda Gradačac (also they beat them 5:0), and in third match Tekstilac beat FK Budućnost Banovići in Banovići with 5:1.
On those games still on the field between the old slaughter house and the textile industry factory „Ukrina“ there was about 1500 to 2000 spectators. The most influential people from this period and those most responsible for the club's success were player Haso „Koka“ Kapetanović, Ivica Sirovina as member of technical committee and unbeatable president and chairman Ismet Alibegović.
Unfortunately, many of the players and member of the board of directors are not alive today, like Nikica Sirovina (excellent man and captain of squad), Faruk Tarabar, Haso Kapetanović, Kemal "Spazo" Buzadžić, Nezir "Benco" Crnčević. Many of them also were refugees from Derventa: Ramo "Sebura" Slomić, Kemal Šljoka Generalić, Alija Vejzović "Jarac" i Mesud "Dodo" Jegić and they all are in Sweden today. Emin Nakić and Pavek are in United States of America, Zvonko "Šimeta" Bošnjak, Suljko and others are in Germany.
