Fudbalski klub Timok (Serbian Cyrillic: Фудбалски клуб Тимок) is a professional football club from Zaječar, Serbia. They currently compete in the Serbian League East, the third tier of the national league system.

History[edit]

Founded in 1919, the club mainly participated in the regional leagues during the early Yugoslav era. They achieved their first notable success by defeating Dinamo Zagreb 3–1 in the first round of the 1973 Yugoslav Cup. The club also competed for three seasons in the Yugoslav Second League from 1981 until 1984.

After the dissolution of the former country, the club advanced to the Second League of FR Yugoslavia, finishing bottom of the table in the 1992–93 season. They spent two seasons in the Second League of Serbia and Montenegro from 2002 to 2004, when they were relegated to the Serbian League East.[1]

The club made one of the greatest achievements in its history during the 2005–06 Serbia and Montenegro Cup by eliminating Partizan at their home in the round of 16. After a 1–1 draw in regular time, Timok won 5–4 on penalties.[2] The club was eventually knocked out of the competition in the quarter-final after losing 0–2 away to Radnički Niš.[3]

In 2009, the club finished second in the Serbian League East, losing 4–5 on penalties to Teleoptik (after two 1–1 draws) in the promotion playoffs.[4] After winning the 2011–12 Serbian League East, they were finally promoted to the Serbian First League.[5] The club spent two seasons in the second tier of Serbian football, before being relegated back to the Serbian League East in 2014.[6]
