Meanwhile, Spooner will also be in action in Spain, at the Panoramica Golf and Sport Resort in Castellon.

Both will be teeing off on November 4 and eager to join the other qualifiers in the final stage at Girona’s PGA Catalunya Resort the following week.

There, the top 25 players and ties will earn their European Tour cards.

Those finishing outside the top 25 gain a place on the Challenge Tour, with those who make the cut being being ranked in a higher exemption category.

Wyberton teenager Spooner and Coupland, from Boston, are both attached to Woodhall Spa Golf Club.

Coupland was the first to progress from the first stage, finishing second at Northampton’s Collingtree Park on September 23.

He completed his four rounds on -12, pocketing 1,200Euros in the process.

Fellow Bostonian Jordan Wrisdale also took part in the first-round qualifying event at Collingtree Park, Northamptonshire, completing his four rounds on -4 and missing out by a single shot.

Spooner finished joint-16th in the first qualifying round at Frilford Heath, Abingdon, confirming his qualification on October 7 and carding -3.
