Being realistic, they're probably "separate" in the sense that teams like Thame Rangers and Brackley Town Saints are from their first teams: supposedly separate but in reality just a Reserve side. Either that or we've got a situation akin to Biggleswade FC, but if that's the case their sudden elevation makes no sense (unless the argument is that last season's Eynesbury Rovers Reserves became Eynesbury United and the Reserve team for this current season are the new team).When I came across this recently, the "Eynesbury United" twitter feed was, in the past season, tweeting updates for Eynesbury Rovers Reserves.
When I Google "Eynesbury United twitter", I get the text below as the first result. As you can see, the twitter handle was "@ResRovers" but the twitter feed no longer exists (presumably deleted recently). My best guess is "Reserves become United and new team are Reserves" or , equivalently, "Reserves leave to form United and Rovers find new players for Reserves".
Being legalistic, I would probably suggest that United are the new team because they've left Rovers.
