None.
Meanwhile, the management and quite a number of the players who had expected to be at Whyteleafe this season have moved over to Glebe (SCEFL Premier) in Chislehurst.

They started the season on Saturday with a 5-0 away win, and may have to be considered contenders.

Don't know if there are any moves afoot to either resurrect Whyteleafe or even start up a Phoenix club.

As for a name, and if it is a new club, is there any bar to be simply known as Whyteleafe

If they’re simply in abeyance (a bit like Edgware Town did) rather than having folded the actual football club for financial reasons then I guess they could simply return as Whyteleafe….

I'm sure reformed clubs have to have a slightly different name then they can change to the original after 3 years

They haven't become bankrupt though, they've just left the pyramid. Surely they can restart in grassroots football whenever they like with the same name.

Lingfield are down to play Peacehaven at Whyteleafe's ground this Tues, 3rd Aug, and Egham Town in the Cup on Sat 7th if anyone needs to visit.
There will be no food and drink available to purchase at the game on Tuesday and it is cash only admission according to a tweet from Peacehaven today.

Just like Oxford City did. They resigned from the Isthmian League in 1988 after being evicted from the White House Ground, and didn't play again until joining the South Midland League in 1990.
