ALL three Yorkshire players involved in the search for European Tour cards for next season are in sight of achieving their goal with one round to play at PGA Catalunya Resort in northern Spain.

Woodsome Hall's Chris Hanson and Oulton Hall's Daniel Gavins lost the lead that they shared after 72 holes of the six-round marathon.

But both remain in the top 10, Hanson sixth and Gavins tied ninth, while Hull's Richard Finch is tied 24th.

The leading 25 players and ties at the end of Thursday's final round will earn membership of the European Tour for the 2016 Race to Dubai campaign.

Hanson (70 63 66 71 73) had three birdies going out, but their effect was downgraded by a double bogey at the sixth.

He could find only one birdie, at the 12th, on the run back to the clubhouse and three bogeys led to his one-over 73.

Gavins (71 65 66 68 75) had four bogeys on his card and just one birdie, although coming at his penultimate hole it will have lifted him ahead of the final day's play.

Finch (69 66 70 73 71) was three under par through 12 holes, but dropped shots at 14 and 16 for his one-under-par 71.
