Happy boys in game with yours truly (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

gladsome

Here is my best explanation:

'happy' is the definition.

('gladsome' can be similar in meaning to 'happy')

'boys in game with yours truly' is the subsidiary indication.

'boys' becomes 'lads' (lad is a kind of boy**).

'in' is an insertion indicator.

'game' becomes 'go' (go is a kind of game).

'with' says to put letters next to each other.

'yours truly' becomes 'me'.

'lads' put inside 'go' is 'gladso'.

'gladso'+'me'='gladsome'
