Ability to return sub section of identified regex as entity

We can identify any regular expression but can we *return specific part of extraction as entity* .
e.g. regex is TN(\s)?(#)?(\s)?[0-9]{6,10} , I wish to identify whole expression and return only last identified number.

TN # 12345689

From about example if one can return "12345689" it will be great which will reduce the post processing and increase the accuracy.

Technical feasibility is very high , team need to integrate into UI
