FORMER Motherwell star Craig Paterson is leading a charity’s campaign in Scotland to urge men to watch their backs and stay safe in the sun.

The ex-defender, who featured in the Scottish Cup squad of 1991, is backing Macmillan Cancer Support’s awareness raising drive during Sun Awareness Week, which runs from May 2 to 8.

Craig was diagnosed with skin cancer almost three years ago on the trunk of his body - over a third of men who have malignant melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, get it there, particularly the back.
