Chidlow spent roughly a decade in the doldrums but have recently emerged as one of the Hills Football Association's major forces. In 2014 they won the premiership thanks to a 12.9 (81) to 11.11 (77) grand final defeat of Gidegannup. They went on to confront Gidgegannup in the next two grand finals only to suffer reversals on both occasions. Then in 2017 they obtained their second flag when they overcame pre-match favourites Mundaring on grand final day by 38 points, 14.10 (94) to 8.8 (56). It was a similar story a year later as the Tigers overcame their second semi final conquerors Pickering Brook in the "big one" by a margin of 37 points, 10.9 (69) to 5.2 (32). The 2019 season brought another grand final appearance but opponents Mundaring proved to have the Tigers' measure on this occasion. An unusually mediocre 2019 campaign followed in which the side slumped to fourth place on the ladder.
