Yearly English cricket season template(s)

After a minor kerfuffle or two, there's been a bit of a discussion at User talk:Racingmanager#Date templates on cricket season articles about the ways in which we use date nav box templates at the bottom of articles about English cricket seasons - and the ways in which the articles we have on cricket seasons relate to the County Championship articles we have as well. There are a couple of proposals I guess:

I'd be interested in any thoughts on this - including the colour choice! Would people mind awfully replacing what we currently have?
I'd be interested in thoughts on what I've done and if there are other ways forward. One idea to kick around (in the, now traditional, pre-match game of football...) is possibly redirecting Championship articles to the season articles where either the Championship article doesn't exist or, potentially, in every case if there's a feeling that we could get all the information we need in one article - certainly for seasons from a long time ago (although even in this millennium we have relatively little written on most seasons).

Sorry for dropping another long request for comments on here. It's motivated mostly be a desire to not annoy anyone by simple changing stuff too much! Blue Square Thing (talk) 17:02, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

Support. Repeating what I've written at the Racingmanager page, I think the BST template is excellent and should be introduced. I think we should merge all CC articles into the relevant English seasonal articles. This will have the added benefit of giving equal importance to the unofficial championships which were, after all, historically important. This is a really good initiative by User:Racingmanager who has spotted a flaw in our English cricket coverage. Jack | talk page 19:30, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
