Help please

Hello.

I am an 18 year old male and I play football. My main problem is I am not strong enough and only 9 and a half stone. I go to the gym twice a week along with football training twice a week and a game at the weekend.

I really need to get some beef on me if I'm going to make it! Maybe it's the amount of running I do thats burning off anything I put on?

I'm hopeful you guys could give me any tips on how to put on some weight. What to eat, drink etc.

Any help is hugely appreciated

    Thanks for the help, moderator. I've filled out that application like thing -

    1 - I would like to put some weight on. Not be an adonis with six pack or nothing! Just strong.

    2 - Currently working as an electrician. At work I eat the following -

    2 Turkey sandwiches, 2 packets of crisps, a biscuit, a yogurt, an apple and a tangerine.

    To be honest I've not much clue about what I should be eating to beef up but to me that looks like a fairly healthy (apart from the crisps I suppose!)

    At home I am fed well with loads of meat and potatoes but I do often snack on microwavable meals or pot boodles etc.

    3 - I'm around 5'9", 18 years old and 9 and a half stone.

    4 - I'm an electrician. So not usually doing heavy manual labour like a builder would. I football training twice a week along with a game at the weekend. I go to my gym once or twice every week.

    5 - I've never used a substance. I'm intrigued but I'm put off by rumours of side effects. But I'm open to any suggestions.

    6 - I'm not too sure about calories etc. But I've stated what I eat etc above.

    7 – Same as above. Usually out pubbing on a Saturday night though.

    8 - Drink I drink the most are - Milk, diluted juice, water, coffee and a few beers and vodkas on a saturday night!

    9 – I don't have any protein drinks. Again any recommendations are welcome.
